Public procurement, purchase and procurement processes
Public procurement law is a significant area of GWJ law practice. Our team provides comprehensive legal support on every stage of procurement proceedings – both for contracting authorities and contractors. We also support procurement processes that are not subject to the Public Procurement Act.
We assist in most complex procurement proceedings, both for „classical” and sectoral contracting authorities, including joint procurement proceedings conducted by several contracting authorities together.
We help to establish internal purchase regulations, procurement rules and develop standard tender documentation. We take part in projects aimed at optimizing purchase costs in capital groups and provide advice on developing shared service centers (PGNiG Group and ENEA Capital Group).
We share our knowledge and experience in the area of regulatory issues on our Office portal: ZamówieniaSektorowe.pl.
