Public Procurement

How do I ensure that the proposal of candidacy or tender bid for a public contract is submitted correctly? Can we contest the award of a public contract?

The legal domain of Public Procurement governs agreements concluded between one or more contractors, suppliers or service providers on the one hand and one or more contracting authorities (cities, municipalities, provinces) or public undertakings on the other. In recent years, the business world has been paying more and more attention to public procurement. This is only logical given the fact that contracting authorities spend approximately €50 billion on them on an annual basis in Belgium alone.

However, this growing interest on the part of businesses also implies that competition and the interests involved are increasing. At the same time, public procurement legislation is a complex and fast-changing area. That is why it is important for both public authorities and tenderers to be guided with regard to the following:

  • drafting contract documents.
  • the clear and correct submission of a tender.
  • conducting legal proceedings, both with regard to the award of these contracts and their subsequent implementation.

In such matters, Adlex advocaten & bemiddelaars also frequently represents the concerned parties before both the civil courts and the Council of State. Our many years of activity in this field and the high level of expertise of our lawyers offer the best chances of a favourable outcome.
