The main thing you need to know about tenders in Ukraine
The word “tender” came to us from the English language and originally meant a proposal. Now it has become synonymous with the word “bidding”. In other words, a tender is a selection of proposals on a competitive basis, during which they choose the best bid for the supply of goods, the provision of services or the performance of work.
What is a tender
During the tender, the contracting company is able to find out which of the trade offers is optimal from the point of view of the financial benefit of meeting the set conditions. The tender is held on time between companies that have applied for participation in advance. The main feature of the tender is fair competition. The winner is the one who made the offer with the most favorable terms and with the maximum compliance with the requirements specified in the bidding documents.
A tender can be conducted by both a commercial and a state company. It is the victory in the state procurement competition that is the goal of many executing companies.
What are the opportunities for participation in the procurement procedure
Public procurement takes place when there is a need to satisfy state or municipal needs. Until recently, it was difficult to participate or even win in such a bid. This was hampered by imperfect legislation, the complexity of the procedure and corruption. As a rule, the winner was known in advance, and he did not always provide conditions that were really beneficial for the state or the community. Today the situation has changed, and the victory in public procurement has become a real opportunity for Ukrainian businessmen.
We are talking about public procurement as the most promising type of tender. After all, the needs of the state are diverse and large-scale. Signing a contract with a government agency, you get the opportunity to perform only large orders for a wide audience. Public needs are extensive, and many can find a profitable order for themselves.
There is an opinion that public procurement is a complex process, in which it is not easy to understand. Perhaps 5 years ago such a statement was fair, but not now, when a tender in Ukraine is conducted through a transparent and understandable system, and experienced experts can help in this.
What is the difference between the modern process of public procurement
Since 2014, Ukraine has a new law “On the implementation of public procurement.” It is designed to create a competitive environment in the sphere of public procurement, to resist corruption in this sphere and to develop fair competition.
Now, state tenders are conducted through the electronic system “ProZorro”. This is a common system that unites around itself commercial online sites. It is on them that users and organizers are registered for the bidding. In addition, there are other resources that inform everyone about the upcoming competitions. First of all, it is the “Tender of mi wua, on which information about public procurements is published every week.
The use of Prozoro provides, among other things, automatic evaluation of tender proposals. This means that the submitted tender documentation must be in perfect order.
