Negotiated Procedure without prior publication

This procedure can only be used in narrowly defined circumstances, for example, where no tenders, no suitable tenders or no suitable requests to participate were submitted in response to an open or restricted procedure, or where for technical or artistic reasons, or the protection or exclusive rights, the contract can only be carried out by a particular supplier.

The public body will approach one or more suppliers seeking to negotiate the terms of the contract.
