Contracts for supplies, goods, works or services should be the subject of competitive tendering. VIVAQUA favours a negotiated procedure for awarding contracts.
In the case of contracts worth over €170,000 (not including VAT), a contract notice is published in the Bulletin of Public Tenders, and even in the European Union's Official Journal if the European directives' application thresholds are reached.
Interested applicants should make a participation request to VIVAQUA, seconded by an application that includes the documents required for the call for applicants (financial information, references, description of the company,...). Applicants chosen on the basis of these documents will be asked to send a tender, along with the special conditions.
In the case of contracts that do not attain the advertising threshold, VIVAQUA has direct consultations with a series of shortlisted companies. Suppliers wishing to be included on the shortlisted suppliers' list should get in touch with the VIVAQUA Lead Service:
