Section IV: Procedure
Section VI: Complementary information
Contracts with an estimated value below the European thresholds do not fall under the scope of the European directives. As the total estimated value of the contract is expected to be far below the threshold for European tendering, the used tender procedure will be ‘limited tendering’. We have invited 3 parties to participate in this tender procedure.
Closing date for submission of tenders will be 20.1.2020 11 a.m. (CET)
The reason for publication of this tender at TED and TenderNed is a possible cross border interest of parties. On the basis of case law of the European Court of Justice, contracts with a clear cross-border interest must still be put out to tender in accordance with European procurement law principles (non-discrimination, transparency, etc.). For this reason, assignments with a cross-border interest must be disclosed with ‘an appropriate degree of publicity.’ With this publication TenneT is of the opinion that it fulfills this obligation.
