waiting room construction
The municipality concludes an agreement with the winning tenderer for each lot. An agreement is also concluded with the tenderer who finished second. Characteristic of this second agreement is that it does not include an order for execution. The tenderer will only be considered for the contract if the winning tenderer, for whatever reason, is unable to fulfill the obligations in its agreement. This could also be the result of bankruptcy.
This method is known as the “waiting room construction”. If the agreement with the winning tenderer is terminated or dissolved, an agreement for the execution of the assignment will be concluded with the second-ranked tenderer. This tender procedure is conducted entirely via TenderNed. This means it sending and receiving documents and all communication takes place via TenderNed. The closing date for the lots has been set at October 11, 2022.
