2.4.4. Competitive negotiated procedure

Under the competitive negotiated procedure, the contracting authority invites candidates of its choice to submit tenders. From the technically compliant tenders, it selects the one that offers the best value for money in the case of tenders for services, and the cheapest, in the case of tenders for supplies or works.

The evaluation (including the use of an evaluation committee) and the award of the contract follow the rules of the restricted procedure.

For further details regarding competitive negotiated procedure in services see point 3.4.2., for supplies see point 4.5. and point 5.6. for works.
