A Prior Information Notice should be forwarded by the contracting authority and published in the OJEU for publication to inform potential suppliers of planned contracts. Alternatively, the contracting authority may publish the information itself on its web site by way of a ‘Living PIN’.

The publication requirement is based on the estimated total expenditure of the contracts or framework agreements by product as determined by the CPV codes.

Where a PIN has been published the contracting may shorten the timescales where the PIN has been published at least 52 days and not more than 12 months prior to the publication of the contract notice.

Supplies
Where the estimated total value of the contracts or framework agreements by product area over the following 12 months exceeds €750,000, as soon as possible after the beginning of the financial year a list of planned contracts should be published in the OJEU.

Services
Where the estimated total value of the contracts or framework agreements in each of the categories of Part A services over the following 12 months exceeds €750,000, as soon as possible after the beginning of the financial year a list of planned contracts should be published in the OJEU. 

Works
Where the estimated total value exceeds the published works threshold a PIN should be published as soon as possible after the decision approving the planning of the works contract or the framework agreements that the contracting authority intends to award.
