New public procurement law
Legal tender with the RAL quality mark
In the procurement of containers for waste and recyclables, compliance with quality and standards are just as important as a legally compliant tender.
Likewise, the contracting authority often wishes to integrate other criteria, such as sustainability or suitability for people with disabilities.
These claims are significantly strengthened by the new procurement law. Determining the most economical tender can now also take into account qualitative, environmental or social contract award criteria.
The use of quality marks has also been strengthened, provided that they meet certain requirements. This also applies in full to the quality mark RAL-GZ 951/1.
With a view to clarifying the new facts, GGAWB e.V. has obtained a legal opinion from the renowned lawyer specialising in tender law, Angela Dageförde. Together with her, several documents have been developed to help you prepare tenders for containers for waste and recyclables in compliance with public procurement law.
Provided as a download you will find a summary of the legal opinion as well as the proposal of the GGAWB e.V. for a price adjustment clause as part of the contractual terms and conditions and for the evaluation of tenders, as well as the draft specifications for containers for waste and recyclables.
