Complaint against the tender customer’s decision

The competition in tendering is extremely high and sometimes the customer may make a decision that you do not think is objective or fair. In such cases, it is important to know your rights and opportunities to effectively challenge this decision. Our experts will help to send a complaint against the decision of the tender customer in accordance with all the rules.

In what cases can the decision of the tender customer be appealed?

  • If your bid was rejected without proper justification or on the basis of improper criteria.
  • If the customer did not comply with the requirements and conditions set out in the tender documentation.
  • If you have reason to believe that the decision to determine the winner of the tender was made without proper reasoning or on the basis of biased.
  • If the tender was canceled by the customer without proper legal grounds and procedures.
  • If you discover any other irregularities related to the tender procurement process, such as corrupt practices, conflict of interest, etc.

Appealing the decision of the tender customer is an important mechanism for protecting the rights of tender participants and ensuring a fair competitive environment in the field of public procurement.

Why is it not recommended to file such a complaint without the support of a lawyer?

Filing a complaint against the tender customer’s decision without the support of a qualified lawyer may have several serious disadvantages and risks:

  1. Challenging the decision of the tenderer requires knowledge and understanding of complex legal norms and procedures. Lawyers specializing in public procurement have the necessary experience and expertise to effectively represent your case.
  2. A lawyer will help identify and document all factual and legal violations that may be the basis for challenging the decision. This will provide a higher chance of success in a judicial or administrative process.
  3. A professional lawyer will help you understand all aspects of the appeals process, including deadlines for filing an appeal, required documents, and other important details.
  4. A legal professional will help to collect and prepare all the necessary evidence and arguments for a strong appeal, which will increase the chances of successfully challenging the decision.
  5. A lawyer will protect your interests at all stages of the legal process, including negotiations, representation in court or before administrative authorities.

Therefore, it is recommended to contact a qualified lawyer to accompany the complaint against the tender customer’s decision in order to ensure the success of your case and the protection of your rights and interests as much as possible.
