How to overcome the challenges in market consultation

Procurement practitioners still face several difficulties when applying market consultation in practice. There is a risk that the principle of equal treatment becomes infringed upon. The directives do not provide clear guidelines on how to use this procedure in practice. Procurement officers are, therefore, dependent on their own assessment whether they are conducting market consultation in accordance with the legal rules.

Use the full potential of market research

In order to succeed, procurement practitioners need to have a clear picture of what market consultation should actually entail. In this practical seminar, you will learn how to proceed effectively in market consultation. Market research can be a powerful tool to facilitate the effectiveness of follow-up procedures in procurement. It enables procurement officers to choose the optimal procedure while inviting the most suitable bidders to the formal procurement process.

  • How to develop a strong strategy for market consultation
  • How to conduct market consultation for complex procurements
  • Which strategy is the most useful one in light of market consultation results?

  • How to approach the right suppliers
  • How to avoid being accused of unequal treatment
  • How to generate interest in your agency as a buyer
  • How to document preliminary market consultation properly
