Precise information on deadline(s) for review procedures:

The time limit for lodging appeals is 15 calendar days from receipt of the non-assistance notification (see Section 160(3)(4) GWB).

In addition to the waiting and information requirements, please also pay particular attention to the rules on the procedure before the Public Procurement Chambers laid down in the Gesetz gegen Wettbewerbsbeschränkungen (GWB):

1. Information and waiting obligations (§ 134 GWB)

(1) Contracting authorities shall inform tenderers whose tenders are not to be accepted, without delay and in writing, of the name of the undertaking whose tender is to be accepted, of the reasons for the proposed failure to take their tender into consideration and of the earliest date on which the contract is concluded. This also applies to candidates who have not received information on the rejection of their application before the notification of the award decision to the tenderers concerned.

(2) A contract may not be concluded until 15 calendar days after dispatch of the information referred to in paragraph 1. If the information is sent electronically or by fax, the time limit shall be reduced to 10 calendar days. The period shall begin on the day following the date on which the information is sent by the contracting authority; the date of access by the tenderer and candidate concerned is irrelevant.

2. Ineffectiveness effects (§ 135 GWB)

(1) A public contract shall be ineffective from the outset if the contracting authority:

— has infringed Paragraph 134 of the GWB, or

— awarded the contract without prior publication of a notice in the Official Journal of the European Union, without this being permitted by law, and that infringement has been established in a review procedure.

(2) The invalidity referred to in (1) may be established only if it has been invoked in the review procedure within 30 calendar days of the contracting authority having informed the tenderers and candidates concerned of the conclusion of the contract, but not later than six months after the conclusion of the contract. Where the contracting authority has published the contract award notice in the Official Journal of the European Union, the time limit for claiming ineffectiveness shall expire 30 calendar days from the date of publication of the contract notice in the Official Journal of the European Union.

3. Initiation, application deadline (§ 160 GWB)

The application for review shall be inadmissible in so far as:

— the applicant has recognised the alleged infringement of public procurement rules before lodging the application for review and has not raised a complaint with the contracting authority within 10 calendar days; the expiry of the time limit under Section 134(2) of the GWB remains unaffected;

—Infringements of public procurement rules which are apparent from the contract notice are not raised against the contracting authority at the latest by the deadline for submission of tenders specified in the contract notice;

—Infringements of procurement rules which are only apparent in the procurement documents are not raised against the contracting authority by the deadline for submission of applications or tenders at the latest;

— more than 15 calendar days have elapsed after receipt of the contracting authority’s notification of its intention not to remedy a complaint.
