Together with the planning associations and municipal umbrella organizations, the bdla has co-signed a resolution on the infringement proceedings of the EU Commission. Specifically, it concerns the abolition of § 3 para. 7 sentence 2 VgV (estimation of the contract value - award of lots) and the resulting obligation of a Europe-wide invitation to tender for planning services for construction projects from approximately € 1 million. The resolution appeals to the German government not to give in to the EU Commission and to wait for the legal assessment by the ECJ.
