A bidder’s self-cleaning/procurement law

News from 07.02.17

In procurement proceedings, a bidder who has committed certain crimes and other severe misconduct faces a block on contract awarding that can last up to five years. Bidders can prevent being precluded from procurement proceedings via so-called self-cleaning measures, the requirements of which have, for the first time, been codified into law under § 125 of the Gesetz gegen Wettbewerbsbeschränkungen (the Act against Restraints on Competition).
