Procurement of a new wheel loader with an edge cutter
Ullensvang Municipality, Dept. of Roads, Parks and Harbour, is in critical and immediate need of a newer wheel loader with equipment. In connection with this, the municipality has received tender offers for a contract for the purchase of a used machine from one tenderer and intends to enter into a contract for the purchase with Volvo Maskin AS for the delivery of 1 used Volvo LH90 Wheel Loader with an edge cutter on 20.02.2023, provided that no other tenderers declare that they can compete with such a contract by the same date.
The wheel loader is an important piece of equipment that allows the municipality to carry out snow ploughing and gritting, edge cutting and other maintenance tasks.
Ullensvang Municipality has been following the market for used wheel loaders over the past six months.
The offered price for a wheel loader is NOK 2,350,000, which is significantly under market price for a good quality wheel loader with edge clippers.
Ullensvang Municipality believes that the offered contract is an unusually advantageous offer which makes it possible to procure a wheel loader with an adapted edge cutter within the time frame from the new budget until it must be put to use. The budget is a maximum of NOK 3 million. The offered wheel loader can be delivered in a significantly shorter amount of time than what would be possible through a regular procurement process. It is difficult to find current parts for the existing wheel loader, which have broken several times. The Dept. of Roads and Parks does not have this type of vehicle in reserve.
If there are other tenderers in the market that are able to deliver in accordance with the requirement specifications, and that can compete with the above-mentioned conditions, please contact the contracting authority before 20 February 2023 at the latest so that the contracting authority can assess facilitating a contest for the procurement.

Abschnitt IV: Verfahren
Type of procedure:
Contract award without a prior competition.
The procurement is outside the scope of the procurement regulations.
This voluntary ex-ante transparency notice is pursuant to the PPR § 13-4 letter b) no. 2 on situations where competition is impossible due to technical reasons. The provision states that: The contracting authority can hold a contest with negotiations without a prior announcement if (...)
b) the procurement concerns services that only one specific supplier can provide as (....)
2). a contest is impossible due to technical reasons or (...) when there are no reasonable alternatives and the lack of competition is not due to the contracting authority having adapted the procurement documents for a specific supplier.
It is unlikely that we will receive a corresponding offer that satisfies the requirement specifications, delivery time and price (within the budget), and for that reason Ullensvang municipality believes that the condition that "there are no reasonable alternatives" is met, as that it is not possible to obtain this technical solution or combination, i.e. that this type of machine with equipment cannot be found. We justify this with online searches and the combination of adapted equipment.
We also refer to the exemption rules in the PPR § 13-3 letter e)
e. it is impossible to comply with the deadlines for an open tender competition, limited tender competition or a competition with negotiation after a prior notice due to conditions that are not caused by the contracting authority and that the contract authority could not predict. The scope of the contract must not be larger than strictly necessary:
This is a one-time procurement. There are various reasons why Ullensvang Municipality, Dept. of Roads, Parks and Harbour, finds itself in a situation where we need to carry out a direct procurement. In our case, it is the size of the budget combined with the fact that the existing wheel loader has expired earlier than expected, which means that we must procure a used machine with the right equipment. Parts of the budget process can be easily predicted, but the market situation cannot, including shortages of machines and parts, and combinations of these.
The average turnover time for current wheel loaders in good condition is short. There is great demand for this type of vehicle and in such a price range. This applies in particular to the additional equipment used for edge cutting. This is expensive and difficult to find separately. This has been confirmed through, among other things, searching for competition on CPV code 16311000 Lawnmowers and 34390000 Accessories for tractors to buy edge cutters separately, and through no offers having been received during at least two competitions, and where the competition has been cancelled in the second half of 2022.
