Effectively and timely manage procurement deadlines that cannot be met during the quarantine.
First of all, it is the term for the submission of bids. There is no general mechanism which would be similar to the litigation procedure, for extending deadlines during the public procurement procedure. In most cases, the extension is possible only in particular cases (for example, in case of changing the tender documentation). At the same time, the legislator sets only the minimum deadlines for the submission of bids. In such circumstances, participants can manage the term by claiming the elimination of breaches. Special attention should be paid to the procedural peculiarities of these claims (limitation of the submission deadline, submission procedure), their validity (we recommend to emphasize the objectivity of the circumstances and the risk of violating one of the principles of procurement such as non-discrimination), as well as to relevance (the urgency of the procurement; whether the customer leaves open the possibility of extending the procedure).
