Use of Intermediaries

Use of intermediaries in the publication of OJEU notices on Tenders Electronic Daily (TED) The European Commission has raised objections to the practice of including links to intermediaries’ websites in OJEU contract notices published on TED. The Commission’s concern relates to cases where such links do not take the user directly to additional information that specifically relates to the contract opportunity in the contract notice. Instead, such links are used as a means of advertising the intermediary’s services and/or soliciting registration with the intermediary.
