Procurement law part 3, May 2016

Dear Reader,

On 18 April 2016 the Reform of the German procurement law came into effect. In Europe-wide award procedures a legal regime restructured to a great extent and modified in many fields also with regard to its contents has to be observed now. In our series on the new procurement law we shall take the opportunity to provide you with information in eleven brief articles through getting to the heart of the most important modifications and new features. In part 1 of our series we started with an introduction to the new structure of procurement law and the e-award procedure, focussing in the following edition on the types of procedures and the new time limits. In this edition we will now illustrate the new requirements regarding suitability, ability and standing, including the furnishing of proof by means of the European Single Procurement Document (ESPD), as well as the options and duties of a contracting authority to exclude participants in award procedures and their readmission to competition after successful self-clearance.

We hope you find this newsletter an interesting and valuable read! Should you have any questions, comments or need more detailed information, please do not hesitate to contact our lawyers at any of our offices.

With best regards Hans Georg Neumeier
