All amounts mentioned above are in EUR.
It should be noted, however, that even below these thresholds some tendering obligations are still applicable.
The Proportionality Guide (gids proportionaliteit) (which the government is, in principal, obliged to obey) makes clear that a service assignment with a value of more than EUR 20 000 should be awarded by the central government following a competition in a multiple private private tender procedure (meervoudig onderhands) and assignments with a value of EUR 100 000 or more after a national-wide public tender procedure (national openbaar). For other tender agencies, the thresholds are between EUR 70 000 and EUR 175 000, respectively. Furthermore, if an interest is expressed by other Member States, some kind of tender obligation may exist.
Pursuant to Art. 2.24 of the Procurement Act (Aanbestedingswet 2012), some contracts are excluded from the Procurement Act (Aanbestedingswet 2012). For example, services for arbitration and services related to research.
