IT procurement law

The Dutch government is the largest purchaser of IT goods and IT services in the Netherlands. The purchases of the government are often bound by procurement law. For example, all tenderers must be treated equally and the government must act transparently during the procedure. That does not always go well. Especially with complex IT tenders.

That is why we are happy to help you with all your IT procurement questions:

  • Can I correct the error in my bid afterwards?
  • Can the contracting authority ask for a specific brand?
  • I know that the winner cannot meet all the required specifications. What can I do about it?
  • When am I (not) allowed to contact the contracting authority?
  • What are my options if I disagree with the award decision?
  • What are the biggest legal risks in the most used purchase conditions: the ARBIT and GIBIT?
