Our Approach

PROSE assists the Kasseler Verkehrs-Gesellschaft (KVG) with technical expertise from the time of publication of the tender until the award of the contract. KVG was supported particularly in the priority areas of:

  • Answering bidders’ questions
  • Bid evaluation and
  • Support during bidder discussions

Based on the technical specifications, which were developed with the support of PROSE, the bidders’ questions were answered. PROSE established a small agile team for the bid evaluation, which started the intensive and systematic evaluation after receipt of the bids. The team was engaged in the same composition for the indicative as well as for the binding offers. In addition to adhering to the demanding schedule, this required close coordination with the KVG project team. At a joint workshop on-site in Kassel, the bidder discussions were prepared, and criteria for the evaluation-relevant requirements were developed.
