The Copenhagen Metro uses the tender module from Byggeprojekt.dk
Even though digital tendering was not to become a requirement until 2018, The Copenhagen Metro and the Greater Copenhagen Light Railway insisted on taking the lead in this development. When the new Danish Public Procurement Act and the new Directive on procurement by entities operating in the water, energy, transport and postal services sectors came into effect on 1 January 2016, the companies started combing the market for a technical solution with the capacity to deal with the challenges associated with guaranteeing equal treatment for all parties in the context of digital tendering with negotiation on major projects.
“All parties must be fully confident that whoever was invited in for the last round of negotiations – and thus submitted the last bid – did not gain any advantage from this. And when the first bids start to arrive, everyone must be certain that the bids are stored in a safe place, where no-one has access to them,” relates Carsten Larsen, Senior Procurement Manager at the Copenhagen Metro and the Greater Copenhagen Light Railway.
