Are you already a report­ing body?*

With the oblig­a­tion to trans­mit data for pro­cure­ment sta­tis­tics as of Octo­ber 1st, 2020, a not incon­sid­er­able addi­tion­al work­load will arise for all con­tract­ing author­i­ties with the estab­lish­ment of a report­ing office. In just a few steps, we will explain what you now have to con­sid­er in order to reduce your addi­tion­al time bur­den.

What to start with

First of all, it is impor­tant to dis­tin­guish which report­ing pro­ce­dure is suit­able for you. The most like­ly method is “IDEV”. Here you will enter the data to be trans­mit­ted in a web-based appli­ca­tion after the award of the con­tract. Some providers of award man­age­ment sys­tems and award plat­forms are con­nect­ed to the Fed­er­al Sta­tis­ti­cal Office via the “.CORE” report­ing pro­ce­dure. Here, after your elec­tron­ic com­mand, the required data from the e‑award file can be sent direct­ly to the award sta­tis­tics.

How to reg­is­ter

If you have not yet reg­is­tered with the Fed­er­al Sta­tis­ti­cal Office in this con­text, please fol­low this link (although we accept no lia­bil­i­ty what­so­ev­er for its func­tion­ing, accu­ra­cy, etc., or for the linked con­tent):

Enter the request­ed data there and accept the pri­va­cy pol­i­cy regard­ing your IDEV reporter account after you have read the legal notice.

Check your entries again and “sub­mit” them using the but­ton at the bot­tom right of the screen.

Time goes by

Accord­ing to infor­ma­tion from “DESTATIS”, the per­son you spec­i­fy as the con­tact per­son will receive an iden­ti­fi­er, pass­word and an indi­vid­ual report­ing sta­tion num­ber with­in 14 days. With these cre­den­tials, you can log in to your IDEV report­ing account and duti­ful­ly send the data required by the Pro­cure­ment Sta­tis­tics Ordi­nance for your award.

Please note that you have only 60 cal­en­dar days after the date of the award to ful­fill your oblig­a­tions. If your award con­sists of sev­er­al lots, the award date of the last lot award­ed will count.

Do not hes­i­tate to start the data trans­mis­sion prompt­ly after the award. If, for exam­ple, any review pro­ce­dures have result­ed in changes to your award, you can add these to your IDEV report­ing account at any time with­in the 60-day peri­od.

Please note!!!

We are not an IT con­sul­tan­cy or any­thing like that. If you are not sure or there are prob­lems with the trans­mis­sion — which you should check care­ful­ly at least the first time — you do not need our help, but that of admin­is­tra­tive and IT con­sul­tants. The ref­er­ences in the above text are only our self-dec­la­ra­tion, because one thing we can tell you already now: we are also a report­ing point for the pub­lic clients who rely on us for the mon­i­tor­ing of award pro­ce­dures. So if you come to the deci­sion that all the above activ­i­ties would be bet­ter done by some­one else, just think of us — and feel free to call us any­time!

*This legal tip is no sub­sti­tute for legal advice in indi­vid­ual cas­es. By its very nature, it is incom­plete, it does not relate to your case, and it also rep­re­sents a snap­shot, as the legal basis and case law change over time. It can­not and does not cov­er all con­ceiv­able con­stel­la­tions, serves main­te­nance and ini­tial ori­en­ta­tion pur­pos­es and is intend­ed to moti­vate you to clar­i­fy legal issues at an ear­ly stage, but not to dis­cour­age you from doing so.
