Public Tenders

Partner countries tender for the construction work, deliveries and services required to implement enlargement contribution projects. Swiss companies can apply too. The SDC and SECO advertise ongoing tendering procedures on the SIMAP platform that could also be of interest to Swiss companies.

The awarding of contracts for supplies and services is a process that takes place after projects have been selected and approved. The executing agency responsible for implementing the enlargement contribution project issues, in accordance with applicable domestic and international guidelines (national, EU and WTO regulations), a public tender for the construction work, deliveries and services required for the project.

Where EU guidelines apply, the entire procurement procedure is subject to obligations regarding information and transparency. In such cases, calls for tender are published not only in the partner countries but also throughout the EU. Once the tendering procedure has been completed, the executing agency signs delivery and service mandates with the selected service providers.

All tenders for the construction work, deliveries and services required for projects that are financed as part of the enlargement contribution or the EU's structural and cohesion funds are also open to Swiss companies.
