On 5 February, the Central Administrative Court for Contractual Appeals agreed to reject the appeal filed against the terms and conditions regulated in the public tender issued by the DGRCC for the “Framework Agreement for the procurement of the supplies of desktop computers, laptop computers, monitors and other workstation solutions”, and to lift the suspension on the procedure pursuant to the provisions established in Article 57.3 of the Public Sector Contracts Act (Spanish acronym: LCSP). At any event, it should be remembered that FA 02/2016 on the supply of personal computers, laptops and monitors finalises on 2 March 2021 for lots 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9 and hence those bodies that have to process public contracts under these lots should submit their proposed awards through Conecta-Centralización prior to 26 February 2021. Lot 1 will remain in force until 13 May 2021.
On 30 April 2021, the validity of FA 07/2016 expires. The deadline for awarding contracts based on the framework agreement coincides with the expiry of its validity, and hence 23 April 2021 is established as the maximum deadline for sending proposed awards through the Conecta-Centralización application. Given that the maximum term for implementing contracts may not exceed the time limit set for the duration of the framework agreement by more than six months, the deadline for the delivery of the material provided for therein may not go beyond the date of 30 October 2021. The new framework agreement for the supply of non-inventory office material is at a preparatory stage, and hence its entry into force cannot yet be determined.
FA 02/2016 on the supply of personal computers, laptops and monitors for lots 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9 terminates on 2 March 2021, and hence those bodies that need to process contracts based on these lots must send their proposed awards through the Conecta-Centralización application by 26 February 2021. Lot 1 will remain in force until 13 May 2021. The tender for the new framework agreement on personal computers, laptops and monitors and other job position solutions (FA 02/2020) is suspended due to the imposition of special resources on purchasing and the date of its entry into force cannot thus be determined and hence it is possible that its start date does not coincide with the date of the termination of lots 2 to 9 of the current framework agreement.

On 29 October 2020, the extension to Lots 1 and 2 of Framework Agreement 20/2019 was agreed, on the supply of paper for printing equipment, photocopiers, copiers and multi-function copiers, for a period of one year, as from 16 March 2021 to 15 March 2022.
Given the finalisation of Framework Agreement 50/2017, for the provision of services to buy media space and other advertising platforms to display institutional publicity campaigns, a resolution is to be issued on 28 February 2021 to determine the deadline to initiate procurement proceedings under this framework agreement.Click here for more information
