Negotiated procedure

STAR Procurement (a shared procurement service for Rochdale, Stockport, Tameside and Trafford Councils), Glossary of Terms, published in May 2019, suggests that a ‘negotiated procedure’ is:

‘A tender procedure that uses a Pre-Qualification Questionnaire, but then allows negotiation with tenderers before Contract award and used only in certain circumstances of urgency or high degree of technical complexity.’

A negotiated procedure without notice is a negotiated procedure in which the procuring body: ‘…does not place and advertisement in the OJEU, as it intends to negotiate a contract with a specific (usually specialist) supplier and used only in rare circumstances where supply is limited to one economic operator.’
