Pre-tender Market Consultation

Pre-tender market consultations may involve advice from independent experts or authorities or from market participants. The advice received may then be used to plan and conduct the procurement procedure. It is the contracting authority’s duty to ensure that the consultations do not distort competition, violate the principles of non-discrimination and transparency or otherwise bestow an undue advantage on a candidate that has advised the contracting authority.
