Bulgaria: Public procurements during the coronavirus crisis

April 2nd, 2020, Source> CMS Law-Now, Authors: Denitsa Dudevska, Zornitsa Stoykova

 

 

The Public Procurement Agency has announced on its website that it is reviewing the Emergency Measures Act and the business and contracting authorities are awaiting its official guidelines.

Although the Bulgarian parliament adopted measures in the recently passed state-of-emergency law (Emergency Measures Act) to regulate major relationships during the current crisis, questions still remain in regard to public procurement.

How does the emergency legislation affect procedures?

There had been a legislative proposal that all public procurements be suspended during the state of emergency, but part of the business community protested. The proposal was not supported by the legal parliamentary committee and it was not adopted by parliament. Hence, no explicit regulation states that public procurement procedures will be automatically suspended.

In light of the state of emergency in the Czech Republic declared on 12 March 2020, the Office for the Protection of Competition of the Czech Republic issued a statement that procurement rules can be relaxed for the acquisition of urgent medical commodities such as facemasks, respirators, disinfectants and other medical supplies.

The Competition Office acknowledged that currently the main priority when making these purchases is speed, which would be grounds for using the negotiated procedure without publication pursuant to Section 63 (5) of the Act No. 134/2016 Coll., on Public Procurement (Public Procurement Act). The Act states that the contracting authority can use the negotiated procedure without publication where necessary in extremely urgent circumstances, which were not caused by the contracting authority and where the deadlines for the open procedure, restricted procedure or negotiated procedure with publication cannot be reasonably respected.

The following guidance addresses ongoing public procurement procedures, future procedures and existing contracts in the Netherlands.

Ongoing procurement procedures are not automatically suspended

The Dutch government has left it up to contracting authorities to decide whether suspensions or extensions of time limits are appropriate. Many contracting authorities have already extended deadlines for procurement procedures, realising the difficulties tenderers now face to adhere to certain deadlines. Tenderers will be hindered by the virus measures in their internal organisations and in obtaining necessary documents for submitting a valid tender.

We advise potential tenderers to ask contracting authorities to extend deadlines if they haven’t done so already. Contracting authorities in turn will be able to ask tenderers to extend the validity of their tenders since the periods by which tenderers are bound will not be extended automatically.
