Public Procurement and Fund Raising
For the private sector ProTeIn has carried out more than 350 projects supporting the participation in public tender procedures. Most of these projects were related to tenders of German and European Institutions but a reasonable number was performed on international level, e.g. in China, Brazil, Egypt, Albania, Tanzania, Israel, or the US. We have experience with tenders of all important international financial institutions, e.g. the German KfW and GIZ, Japanese JICA, World Bank, Asian Development Bank, European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, European Investment Fund, African Development Bank and the Inter-American Development Bank. Some of our references in this field are:
IEE EU tender for the development of the EU Clean Vehicle Portal (with our strong support, our client was successful
at the first and second tender after 3 years);
Tallinn Port Authority tender for the technical design study of a new container terminal in the Port of Tallinn;
Saudi Petrorabigh tender for the operation of a 10 years contract of providing marine services based on a 10 years
concession. The contract value was more than 150 mill USD;
Tender of Gdynia Port Authority for the sale of WUZ Gdynia (towage company) to a private operator; our client was
selected as the successful buyer of a company;
Durres Port Authority tender for providing strategic consultancy for the further commercialization of the port (framework contract).
Sample; The EU Clean Vehicle Portal (http://www.cleanvehicle.eu) is one of the most important tools for promoting the purchase/procurement of clean road vehicles. ProTeIn has supported our client during the tender phase by providing a full technical concept for the portals and supervising the formal tender procedures as well as has provided a wide range of the content which is presented at the webpage. Furthermore, after 3 years, when a new tender was launched for the continuing operation of the webportal, again ProTeIn has successfully supported our client to win.
In fund raising for the private sector we have specific experience on the European level (FP/Horizon 2020, IEE, IPA, GRUNDVIG; Marco Polo, etc.) as well as on the German level (KfW, ZIM). Some of our references are:
“Community Actions in the Field of Public Health” funding application of the EU Aids and Mobility Project;
EU EACI funding application for the project ProMotion aiming to promote the procurement of clean vehicle of public
institutions in the Middle and Eastern European EU member states;
EU Marco Polo funding application for the operation of container shuttle trains between Germany, Poland and
IPA Adreatic funding application for the operation of an onshore power supply system for ferry vessels at the new
ferry terminal in the Port of Durres;

industrial data exchange solutions using mobile terminal and handhelds.
Hamburger Innovation Council Funding Application for the development of a combined satellite and terrestric data
exchange server in the field of international press and news releases.
Sample: For the operation of the largest EU funding project in the sector of HIV (Aids and Mobility) ProTeIn has successfully elaborated for our client (consortium of 6 European health institutions) the full funding application under the EU programme “Community Actions in the Field of Public Health”. We have managed the whole consortium during the application phase and have supported the negotiation process between the client and the funding authority for finalizing the application and getting the funding.
For the public and semi-public sector we have performed a number of projects on international and German level, by supporting public procurement, e.g.:
