Advice for foreign companies in public bidding in Spain

Public tender in Europe: Spain – European Countries

Public procurement in Spain represents between 10% and 20% of Spanish GDP, so it has an undeniable relevance in the economy, and there are numerous business opportunities for German companies.

Almost 34% of state contracts only one company participates and in 65% of the contracts there are 3 or fewer participants. These figures make Spain one of the European countries with the lowest participation of companies in public tenders, and an opportunity for foreign companies to contract with the Spanish Public Sector, obtaining their contracts through public bidding.

Below, we show data on public contracts in Spain, relating the type of public administration, the type of contract, public works, services or supply, with the amount.

The proposal presented by the bidder in the public tender in Spain.

The proposal presented by a company in a public tender, is the offer that said company makes in relation to the demand that is requested in the public tender, may be a work, provide a service, serve a supply, etc …

In the offer, the bidder can simply indicate the amount for which he will perform the work, provide the service or serve the supply, which is what is known as a public tender type auction, or also, in the offer presented, in addition of the price, describe what characteristics that work has, that service or that supply offered, which is what is known as a public tender.

The information that composes the proposal can be divided into two groups, the administrative, legal, professional and enabling documentation, and the documentation related to the economic offer and technical study.

The documents that collect the information that the company offers, both the economic proposal, and the technical proposal (the result of the technical study), are placed in envelopes, and these envelopes, together with the tender documents inside, are deposited in the registry of the Contracting Authority.

It is very important to write meticulously all the bidding documents and make the envelopes as established in the tender documents, because if we fail to comply with any clause of these, our bid will be excluded from the bidding process, losing all options of being awarded of the works, services or supply contract.

More and more public services bids are processed through electronic bidding. The documents to be submitted electronically are mostly identical to those presented physically in the register or by mail, except that in an electronic tender the envelopes are virtual. It is equally necessary to know the procedure of electronic presentation of offers in service contracts, such as having the electronic device properly configured, even so, the electronic procurement platform of the public sector usually gives problems.
