BAM as a contracting entity
The procurement office at BAM is responsible for purchasing the goods and services required for fulfilling BAM's responsibilities. BAM is a public institution without legal personality under the purview of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy. For this reason, BAM executes its purchases as a contracting entity in accordance with Section 99 of the Act Against Restraints of Competition. As a result, the procurement office is tied to the specifications of public procurement law. In particular, the Regulation on the Award of Public Contracts (VgV), the Procurement and Contract Procedures for Services (VOL, parts A and B) and the Procurement and Contract Procedures for Construction Services (VOB, parts A and B) are applicable in their current versions.
Tenders in accordance with these regulations guarantee, through award procedures that are as transparent and clear as possible, that – as much as possible – all suppliers are able to compete and are treated equally.
In order to notify the general public of all public tenders, and therefore enable as many interested applicants as possible to participate in tender procedures, notification of tenders is provided in special publication entities (including e-Vergabe, bund.de and supplements to the Official Journal of the EU).
The procurement office at BAM performs its purchasing activity based on award law that is not governed by a standardised law in the Federal Republic of Germany; instead, it is comprised of a series of national and European legal bases.
Common Procurement Vocabulary (CPV)
There is a Common Procurement Vocabulary (CPV), the objective of which is to support cross-Europe standardisation of descriptions of ordered items, and therefore enable the bidder to perform effective tender research.
In this context, each item put out to tender is allocated a certain code number. The procurement office at BAM must also state the CPV codes to describe the ordered items when it releases tender notifications.
