In the area of the contract award process, contracting authorities are obliged to apply numerous regulations. In addition to budgetary regulations and ministerial decrees, extensive regulations pertaining to public procurement law need to be observed regardless of the type of services to be awarded. If these regulations are not applied consistently or their application not carefully examined, both the project managers and project as a whole are subject to risk in addition to the risk that the funds will be used inefficiently.
By bundling the technical, commercial and legal expertise we have available for use through our network, we are able to offer contracting authorities comprehensive advice and project support.
The often complex technical and legal requirements as well as constantly changing regulations brought about by new EU directives, national legislation and jurisprudence make it difficult for contracting authorities to keep up to constant date with current regulations. The procurement process also ties up human resources which are then lacking in day-to-day business. Our long-term experience and day-to-day routine with handling procurement procedures makes us able to offer contracting authorities a comprehensive range of tender management services.

Review of the assignment of public contracts
The examination of awards can be carried out as an accompanying examination or as a follow-up review. During the accompanying examination, the procedure is analysed and evaluated in a timely manner in sections. If discrepancies occur, recommendations are made for further action. The advantage of this is that the design of the award procedure can be influenced in order to avoid any procedural errors.
A follow-up review (ex post) first takes place once the entire procedure has been completed. Procedural errors can be identified and the results transferred to future projects, but a correction can no longer be made during the current project.
