Eurojust is in constant need of goods and services to function optimally and maintain an effective organisation.
What is procurement?
Procurement is a structured procedure designed to consult the market for the purchase of these goods and services. A procurement procedure leads to the conclusion of a public contract.
The purpose of a procurement procedure is threefold:
- To guarantee the widest possible participation of economic operators;
- To ensure the transparency of operations; and
- To obtain the desired quality of services, supplies and works at the best possible price.
Offers submitted in the context of a procurement procedure are called “tenders”. An economic operator who has submitted a tender is referred to as a “tenderer”.
Procurement rules applicable to Eurojust
In accordance with Article 74 of the Eurojust Financial Regulation, Eurojust complies with the Financial Regulation applicable to the general budget of the Union (Regulation (EU, EURATOM) No 966/2012 of the European Parliament and of the Council) and its Rules of Application (Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) No 1268/2012). The Financial Regulation and its Rules of Application took over the provisions of Directive 2014/24/EU.
Conditions for tendering
Eligibility to tender: exclusion criteria
Candidates or tenderers shall be excluded from participation in procurement procedures if they are in any of the situations listed in articles 106 and 107 of Regulation (EU, Euratom) No 966/2012 on the financial rules applicable to the general budget of the Union.
Capacity to perform the contract: selection criteria
Tenderers shall have overall capabilities (technical, professional, economic, financial, legal) to perform the contract. If one of the selection criteria listed in the procurement documents is not met, their tender may not be further evaluated.
Evaluation of tenders
Once the tenderer has demonstrated the appropriate capacity to perform the contract on the grounds of the Selection Criteria, the offer will be assessed on the basis of Award Criteria, which serve to identify the most economically advantageous tender.
