Hiring desk

The main amendment to the Dutch public procurement act (aanbestedingswet) as of 1 July 2016, is that a full European procedure must be followed when hiring staff above the threshold value. If the contracting authority wishes to give a local SME a fair chance at assignments, there only remains one viable alternative: implementing a Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS). Essentially, a DPS can be seen as what the marketplace was formerly and has now been approved by the regulator as a legitimate European procedure. Staffing MS removes the burden!
