Section IV: Procedure

IV.1)Type of procedure
Negotiated without publication of a contract notice
Justification for the award of the contract without prior publication of a contract notice in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU)
Directive 2009/81/EC
1) Justification for the choice of the negotiated procedure without prior publication of a contract notice in the OJEU in accordance with art. 28 of Directive 2009/81/EC
The works/goods/services can be provided only by a particular tenderer for reasons that are: technical, connected with the protection of exclusive rights
Danish Defence Acquisition and Logistics Organization (DALO) has assessed that, for technical reasons and for reasons connected with the protection of exclusive rights, the contract may be awarded only to a particular economic operator; that is Krauss-Maffei Wegmann GmbH & Co KG. It is thus DALO's view that there are no other entities that can carry out this task. The reason for this is, among other things, the following:
(1) It is a prerequisite that the supplier has access to (and is full familiar with) the drawings etc. of the Leopard 2 System Denmark, which only Kraus-Maffei Wegmann GmbH & Co KG has.
(2) It is a prerequisite that the supplier has full knowledge about and insight in the requirements and the integration of the relevant software and hardware components, which only Kraus-Maffei Wegmann GmbH & Co KG has. Furthermore, Kraus-Maffei Wegmann GmbH & Co KG has the exclusive rights to several of these components.
(3) It is a requirement that the supplier undertakes to provide full guarantee on the MBTs, which only Kraus-Maffei Wegmann GmbH & Co KG will be able to do due to its framework agreement with DALO regarding Post Production Support. The MBTs are highly complex systems and due to the dangerous nature of the products, the safety requirements (e.g. regarding weapon systems and maneuverability) are extremely high. Therefore, the fulfilment of the mentioned prerequisites/requirement is of paramount importance.
