Get tips on how to proceed, because:

Public procurement law is sufficiently flexible to award public contracts as quickly as possible, even now. In emergency situations like the current one, procurements are permitted within just a few days and, where necessary, even within hours.

  • Contracts may be awarded within hours
  • the deadlines of individual procedures may be reduced (all the way down to 0 hours);
  • there is no minimum number of bidders that need to be addressed;
  • under certain conditions, contracts may also be awarded directly;
  • authorities may act as quickly as technically / physically possible.

Public procurement law is not to be applied below the threshold, as indicated in the new circular available here (in German).

Heuking Kühn Lüer Wojtek’s “Public Sector & Public Procurement” department has been one of the market leaders in public procurement law for years. Its lawyers hold top spots in German and international lawyer rankings. Since 1991, they have advised on awards, restructuring, large-scale projects, and cooperations in the public sector and have accompanied several hundred large-scale projects of federal, state, and local authorities and their subsidiaries with a total volume in excess of EUR 40 billion without any procedure having been successfully challenged to date.

Dr. Ute Jasper is one of the most renowned lawyers for procurement and infrastructure projects in the public sector. She advises federal and state ministries, municipalities, and businesses, particularly on innovative and complex projects. Ute Jasper is a Partner at the law firm of Heuking Kühn Lüer Wojtek where she heads the “Public Sector & Public Procurement” department. For years, she has been ranked number 1 in Public Procurement Law with her team in JUVE Handbook of Commercial Law Firms. According to “Law Firms in Germany,” she is the “premier contact on the market” for infrastructure. In October 2016, she received the JUVE Award for Regulated Industries with her team.
