Procurement process

 

The tender process - negotiated procedure with publication:
  • 1. Publication of contract notice in the Official Journal of the European Union

    The contract notice will specify what minimum requirements suppliers must meet to be pre-qualified for participation in a given tender process, cf. article 42 in the EU-Directive on Tendering.

  • 2. Receipt of request for participation

    Interested suppliers will inform Ørsted that they wish to participate in the tender, which will be done by sending in an application for pre-qualification in accordance with the contract notice.

  • 3. Pre-qualification

    Pre-qualification applications are assessed by Ørsted in accordance with the requirements stated in the contract notice. Suppliers meeting these requirements become pre-qualified. However, Ørsted might choose to set a ceiling on the number of pre-qualified suppliers.

  • 4. Evaluation of offers and negotiation

    Participants are invited to take part in negotiations. Ørsted uses the economically most advantageous offer as the criterion of allocation, based on specific evaluation criteria which most often include price and quality as well as a weighting of these, cf. article 82 in Directive 2014/25/EU.

  • 5. Publication of contract award notice in the Official Journal of the European Union

    Ørsted publishes the contracts that have been awarded in the Official Journal of the European Union, cf. article 70 in Directive 2014/25/EU.


Achilles Utilities NCE

In certain cases we use the pre-qualification database Achilles Utilities NCE, replacing steps 1-3 of the general EU tender process described under EU tendering, cf. article 77 in Directive 2014/25/EU.

In certain cases, we will encourage potential suppliers to register in this pre-qualification database. The prequalification system is published in the Official Journal of the European Union.

When this pre-qualification database is used, the following tender process will apply unless the pre-qualification process involves more than one qualification stage:
  • Evaluation of offers and negotiation

    Participants are invited to take part in negotiations. Ørsted uses the economically most advantageous offer as the criterion of allocation,based on specific evaluation criteria which most often include price and quality as well as a weighting of these, cf. article 82 in Directive 2014/25/EU.

  • Publication of contract award notice in the Official Journal of the European Union

    Ørsted publishes the contracts that have been awarded in the Official Journal of the European Union, cf. article 70 in Directive 2014/25/EU.

SKI-contracts

Since Ørsted is a state-owned corporation, we have the opportunity to waive the obligation to call for tenders by procuring via SKI-contracts.
