Invitations to Tender of PTB

PTB's Procurement Office is responsible for the rapid and economical purchasing of the goods and services which PTB needs to fulfill its tasks.

PTB is a public-law institution without legal capacity under the auspices of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy. In its purchasing procedures, PTB therefore acts as a Public Purchaser in accordance with section 99 of the Law against Restraints in Competition [Gesetz gegen Wettbewerbsbeschränkungen – GWB]. This means that PTB's Procurement Office is bound by the provisions of the Public Procurement Law. In particular, the Ordinance on the Awarding of Public Contracts [Verordnung über die Vergabe öffentlicher Aufträge (Vergabeverordnung) – VgV], the Regulations on Contract Awards for Public Supplies and Services [Unterschwellenvergabeordnung – UVgO and Vergabe- und Vertragsordnung für Leistungen VOL Part B] and the German Construction Contract Procedures [Vergabe- und Vertragsordnung für Bauleistungen – VOB Parts A and B] are applicable in their versions valid at the time in question.
