Our priority requirements – from general to highly specific

Article: Our priority requirements – from general to highly specific

The purchasing volume of Central Procurement (TE) encompasses among others the purchasing requirements for Infrastructure, Material, Capital Goods and Services. This is a broad range from general through to highly specialised supplies and services.

The following list provides an overview of priority requirements in our four product areas of Deutsche Bahn:

Consultancy services

Deutsche Bahn AG has set up a “Continuous pre-qualification process for consultancy services” to simplify the award process for consultancy projects which, due to their volume, are subject to the conditions of part 4 of the Restrictive Practices Act.

As part of this pre-qualification process, the potential applicant will be given the opportunity to demonstrate his suitability for performing the various consultancy services. The main focus will be on obtaining information on technical and sectoral competency, experience, and the pre-qualifier’s ability to perform the individual consultancy services.
