Public procurement law

Submission law

If the public authority procures services on the market, it is bound by the rules of public procurement law (submission law). The municipality is obliged to make its decision on the selection of a provider of the requested service in a legally regulated tendering procedure. The legal basis of the public procurement law is widely indicated; legal norms from the level of international law, federal law, intercantonal law and those of cantonal law are applicable, depending on the type and scope of the procurement.

Our advice focuses on legal issues in public procurement under the WTO Agreement on Government Procurement (GPA of 1994), the Federal Law on Public Procurement (BoeB), the Intercantonal Agreement on Public Procurement (IVöB) and cantonal laws and submission ordinances.

We advise public law institutions in the execution of submissions or companies in their participation in public tenders. We also represent parties in appeal proceedings.
