GÖRG advises states of Hesse and Rhineland-Palatinate on award of complex IT project to automate processing of grants
[Frankfurt, ] A team from the GÖRG office in Frankfurt advised the states of Hesse and Rhineland-Palatinate on a complex shared IT contract award procedure.
The project involved the development, installation and long-term maintenance of a new comprehensive multi-client system for the electronic processing of grant applications. The new system will partially automate grant processing, standardising it and thus making it more efficient. After the conclusion of a tendering process that lasted several months, the contract was awarded to SINC GmbH, a specialist provider of complex software solutions for the public sector. The total value of the project runs into tens of millions.
The GÖRG consulting team was led by Frankfurt partner Dr Kai-Uwe Schneevogl, who had already assisted the states in a previous project, KompRE, with the added participation at that time of North Rhine Westphalia. He was supported by an associate, Tatyana W. Peshteryanu, and the Frankfurt partner Dr Florian Schmitz, who was responsible for matters of IT contract law.
This engagement confirms once again the strong market position of the public procurement law team at GÖRG in supporting complex and strategic public tenders. In addition, the project is a further testament to the successful multidisciplinary collaboration between the procurement law and IT law teams at GÖRG, which has produced a number of public law IT projects – some of them across multiple locations – in the last two years.
