  • Procurement planing
  • Preliminary market consultations, deciding on the procedure
  • Exclusion grounds, setting the selection criteria, drafting technical specifications, award criteria
  • Contract notice and invitation to tender
  • Tenders
  • Evaluation procedure (tender opening, suitability of tenderers, verification, award criteria comparison)
  • Award decision and notification
  • Contract management, modifications and invoicing
 
How will it help you?
Come and address the various issues arising at the different phases of the procurement cycle. You will also have the opportunity to discuss your problems and experiences with experienced procurement practitioners. You will be able to apply in your daily procurement practice the knowledge and skills acquired.
 
Who will benefit most?
The workshop is aimed principally at officials from national, regional and local authorities and other public bodies in EU Member States, candidate countries and in European institutions and agencies who are involved in procurement. It should also be of interest for evaluators, auditors and consultants.
