The legal framework for public IT procurement processes can have major significance for the parties involved, including in relation to conflicts and limitation of liability. At DAHL we have numerous IT certified attorneys with broad experience in the area of procurement on behalf of both clients and tenderers.
Are you engaged in the procurement of public IT contracts as a client or tenderer? Take full advantage of our skilled sparring to identify and deal with potential challenges, both in the planning and execution phases and in bidding on IT tenders.
At DAHL we have extensive experience in advising both clients and tenderers on the legal challenges in relation to specific IT tenders. Over the course of many years, we have concluded a large number of IT tenders and our skills cover both the area of traditional IT tenders and more narrowly specialised fields such as technology procurement, agile contracts and operations agreements.
Private IT providers
We have particularly extensive experience in advising IT providers in the context of IT tenders, where our specialists focus on highlighting potential pitfalls and points to be attentive to. It is widely acknowledged that bidding on IT tenders can be an expensive affair.
We offer expert assistance to draft a contractual basis and to prepare and quality-test tender materials and bid materials. We also help in connection with specific contract negotiations. If you are a private service provider bidding on public contracts, we can help with:
- Quality assurance of your tenders on public IT contracts
- Clarification of questions and responses regarding public IT tenders
- Participation in negotiations around public IT contracts
- Draft back-to-back agreements with sub-contractors
We also frequently collaborate with other consultants, for example, technical consultants, to draw up requirements specifications, service level agreements (SLAs), etc. for public contracts.
It is a requirement that all public authorities conduct EU tendering processes digitally. We have developed a digital tendering system named DAHL Procurement that will help you comply with the regulatory requirements while also helping you streamline and professionalise the tendering processes.
Whether you are a public authority or public organisation we can help you with preparing and quality-testing your IT tender materials, including:
- Drafting or reviewing IT contracts for public procurement
- Review requirements specifications for IT procurement
- Draft or review appendices to IT contracts
- Procurement terms and conditions
With the passing of the Danish Public Procurement Act, it is now possible for public authorities and businesses to procure IT solutions under the tendering form, “Tendering with negotiations”. This form of tendering often makes sense in the public procurement of IT solutions and many contracting authorities have adopted this type of process. We have extensive experience with this type of process and regularly advise both public authorities and businesses in this area.
