Public Tenders Library

As part of the Public Tenders Library, we publish books on public procurement. By virtue of their practical approach to the subject, these publications provide considerable assistance to entities participating in procurements. Our books are targeted at contracting entities, contractors, and other people interested in public procurement. A list of publications follows:

“Public Procurement of Construction Work” (“Zamówienia publiczne na roboty budowlane”)
The book is a practical look at the procedure of public procurement with respect to construction work, including design contests, build or design build tenders, together with the related contractual provisions. It also highlights the most important definitions, concepts and principles of pre construction procedures. The publication will help properly estimate the value of the contract, learn the differences between various types of compensation used in construction work, prepare a specification, and choose the right procurement procedure. In addition, the book contains ready¬ made templates of procurement specifications with appendices (including contract templates), also available on the included CD.

“Construction Work and Services Concessions Act: Commentary” (“Ustawa o koncesji na roboty budowlane lub usługi. Komentarz”)
The publication is a commentary on the concessions act, which has replaced the Public Procurement Law regulations effective since 2004, and has regulated the granting of concessions on construction services. The author provides a detailed discussion of successive sections of the act, pointing out potentially problematic issues for institutions willing to grant a concession. Due to the similarity between concession procedures and public procurement procedures, the commentary is based on literature and rulings in that area, concerning such issues as: advertising a concession, submitting applications and proposals, assessing and evaluating proposals. The book includes document templates and a CD with editable versions of those templates.
