Guidance on the framework agreement pursuant to § 21 VgV

1. Framework agreement with several operators

It is intended to conclude a framework agreement under Section 21 of the Procurement Regulation (VgV) with no more than 3 undertakings, provided that a sufficient number of undertakings meet the selection criteria and a sufficient number of admissible tenders meet the award criteria.

This means, first of all, that the framework conditions for the supply of single-use medical gloves for the LWL (minimum quality standard, delivery conditions, estimated contract volume, etc.) will be put out to tender by means of an open procedure.

The 3 companies ranked first after the evaluation and evaluation of tenders will become parties to the framework agreement. Only with those undertakings are mini-competitions organised during the contractual period of the framework agreement.

2. Organisation of mini-competitions

2.1 First phase of the contract (1.10.21-31.01.2022)

From the start of the contract in 1.10.21 to 31.1.2022, the company will be entrusted with the delivery of the single-use medical gloves (in accordance with the evaluation criteria set out in IV.1) with the initially most economical tender under the open procedure.

2.2 Second (1.2-31.5.2022) and third phase (1.6-30.9.2022)

For the subsequent contractual periods of 4 months, only the 3 parties to the framework agreement will be asked to re-submit prices (by e-mail) and to check quality (sample dispatch of single-use gloves) by means of an informal mini-contest.

Further information can be found in the procurement documents.

Information on the procurement procedure

The procurement documents are only available on the Allocation Platform (www.lwl.org/eVergabe) can be downloaded free of charge; no mail or post will be sent.

Additional information must be provided in electronic form (via the LLF Allocation Platform) at the above contact person at the latest.

To be requested by 14.7.2021.

Please note that an extract from the North Rhine-Westphalia Trade Centre and Public Procurement Register will be obtained from the contracting authority for the tenderer to whom the contract is to be awarded.

German law applies.

Without registration on the award platform, the tenderer is obliged to inform itself of any changes in the award procedure and is therefore subject to the so-called ‘holding liability’. Failure to register means that, when submitting a tender, the tenderer is responsible for ensuring that the tender documents it uses are up to date at the time of submission of the tender and taking into account any changes or explanations received in response to questions raised by the tenderer.

VI.4)Procedures for review
VI.4.1)Review body
Official name: Vergabekammer Westfalen
Postal address: Albrecht-Thaer-Str. 9
Town: Münster
Postal code: 48128
Country: Germany
VI.4.3)Review procedure
Precise information on deadline(s) for review procedures:

Under Paragraph 160 (3) of the Gesetz gegen Wettbewerbsbeschränkungen (Law against restrictions of competition, ‘the GWB’), an application to initiate a review procedure before the Vergabekammer is inadmissible in so far as:

(1) the applicant discovered the alleged infringement of the procurement rules before submitting the application for review and did not challenge the contracting authority within 10 calendar days; the expiry of the period referred to in Section 134 (2) shall remain unaffected,

(2) infringements of the procurement rules which can be identified as a result of the contract notice are not brought before the contracting authority by the expiry of the time limit set out in the contract notice for the submission of applications or tenders;

(3) infringements of public procurement rules which can only be identified in the procurement documents are not raised against the contracting authority at the latest by the deadline for the submission of applications or tenders;

(4) more than 15 calendar days have elapsed after receipt of the contracting authority’s notification that it does not intend to remedy a complaint.

Sentence 1 shall not apply in the case of an application for a declaration that the contract is invalid pursuant to § 135 (1) (2). Section 134 (1) sentence 2 shall remain unaffected.
