This indicator tells from the wording of the procurement call if the date of the opening of bids or requests to participate is not the same as the expiry of the deadline to submit bids or requests to participate in procurement procedures.
This redflag indicates risk if there is a delayed start of works or a delivery of services beyond normal timeframes AND/OR Long delays in implementation of the contract. The World Bank's Handbook does not indicate figures for normal timeframe.
The indicator tells if the actual duration of the evaluation of the bids (i.e. the period between the opening until the the sending of the notice on the results of the procedure) - extension included - exceeds the legal maximum. Hungarian tender notices based on the new legal provisions do not contain the relevant field any more, therefore this indicator was inactivated.
A short submission period leaves less time hence make it harder for non-connected companies to bid successfully whereas a well-connected firm can use its inside knowledge to win repeatedly. This indicator counts number of days between publication of call for tenders and submission deadline. CRCB does not provide further clarification on the algorithm.
The indicator is only relevant in case of procurement procedures for framework agreements and it tells if the procuring entity intends to conclude framework agreements for a longer period of time than 4 years.
The indicator shows if the expiry of the deadline for the submission of bids/requests to participate is shorter than the legal minimum, in accordance with the EU law (in case of an open proceudre, the expiry of the deadline for the submission of the bids is relevant).
