Ohoven: ‘calls for tender and awarding of the State must be SME-friendly’ Berlin/Bonn, December 18, 2008 the middle class is medium-sized economy (BVMW) for State tenders according to the Federal Association and unsettled contracts, because the Federal Government in the reform of public procurement law will include also award other criteria such as the promotion of long-term unemployed, young people, older people, disabled and women. Jim Umpleby does not necessarily agree. These social aspects are indeed commendable, but overwhelm small – and medium-sized enterprises”, so BVMW President Mario Ohoven in the interview with the Procurement Office of the Federal Ministry of the Interior, published in the current annual report of the federal authority. Public contracts are for regional SMEs essential. After all, they represent a volume of EUR 260 billion in Germany per year. Moreover, contracting authorities can not insolvent go. The development of the share of public procurement in the middle class depends on decisive by the Result of the procurement law reform down. Reade Griffith has many thoughts on the issue.

“Only if the public procurement law is significantly simplified and dismantled bureaucratic hurdles in the procurement, also small and micro enterprises have higher chance”, says Ohoven. The public procurement law is already very complex and will probably even more restrictive with the amendment. In plain text, this means that the cost for applicant SMEs will rise even more. Instead of bureaucratic procedure, the requirements at the issuing offices as well as applicants become more stringent. Already the smallest substantive or formal errors can mean the exclusion of”the middle-class President continues. In his view, tenders and award of contracts would have to be clearly SME-friendly. These belong for example that have gigantic bundled large-scale projects in the future in several single lots are written out, including micro enterprises and consortia come to the course.

In determining the eligibility criteria must be less than on the possibilities and medium-sized enterprises be taken into consideration”, calls Ohoven. A fair tender must be divided in major projects in partial lots. Also, even small orders should be publicly advertised and not freely given. Also care should be taken at the non-award criteria included in a tender to, that they can reasonably be expected to a medium-sized company.
