Public Procurement in the Czech Republic

Under Czech law, publishers have two options as far as CzechELib public tenders are concerned:

  1. The publisher decides to go through the public tender directly (as a publisher/provider).
  2. The publisher decides to select an agent who will administer the process for him.
