The complaint to the Contracting Authority consists of two moments:
First – after the announcement of the procurement procedure and after we are familiar with the application criteria we can appeal the criteria which we consider discriminatory and not in accordance with the relevant legislation.
Secondly, after the announcement of the classification of the tender participants, we can complain about our unjustified disqualification or the qualification of other operators if we assess that their qualification is not in accordance with the law.
