    procedure works

    Here we describe how the opportunities are divulged, the content of a public notice, and the stages of the bidding procedure.

    Bidding procedure stages

    Submission of bids

    Bids are received on the day and time provided for in the public notice and in the opportunity, available on the Petronect website. In the case of open bidding or auctioning, the prices initially presented will be ordered according to the judgment criteria set in the bidding document, being able the bidders to submit new prices during the bidding phase.

    Judgment and verification of effectiveness

    At the effectiveness judgment and verification of effectiveness, we order the proposals according to the judgment criterion and analyze adhesion to the bid that best ranks regarding the requirements set forth in the public notice and its attachments.

    If it is verified that the one ranked first has not met all the established requirements, he will be disqualified and the subsequent proposal will be verified in accordance to the original ordering.

    Negotiation

    Having confirmed the bid meets the requirements set forth in the public notice and its attachments, we will negotiate more advantageous conditions with those who submitted it. When the price of the first place holder, even after the negotiation, remains above the reference budget, we will negotiate with the other bidders in the initially established order. If no bids equal to or below the reference budget for procurement are obtained, the bidding procedure will be revoked.

    Qualification

    At this stage, we will evaluate the requirements that must be met to prove the bidder’s suitability and ability to execute the subject matter of the bid. The qualification for the hiring of goods and services will be analyzed based on the parameters set forth under article 58 of Act 13,303/16 and its respective criteria. They are presented here.

    Only the first ranked will be required to submit the qualification documents, except in case of stage inversion, as foreseen as an exception under the State-Owned Company Law. When the top ranked bidder is disqualified, the subsequent bidders’ documents will be requested and evaluated, in the order of ranking.

    The documents required at the qualification phase may be total or partially replaced by the Registration Certificate or by the Pre-Qualification Registration, when compatible with the requirement for the subject matter of the contract, in accordance with the public notice.

If the supply takes place through resale or distribution, the reseller/distributor must report the data of the manufacturer or of the manufacturer plant.

    To get to know the documents necessary to prove the legal, technical, and economic qualifications, go to the supply list on the Petronect Portal.

    If the bidders already have the Pre-Qualification Registration or the full or partial Registration Certificate, either will replace the documents required at the qualification phase, when compatible with the requirement for the subject matter of the contract, in accordance with the public notice. Therefore, the Registration is very important to those interested in participating in Petrobras hiring opportunities.

    If the supplier is not registered, we can register them using the documentation submitted during the qualification stage.

    Appeal

    There is only one appeal stage and it takes place after the qualification has been completed. Appeals must be submitted within five working days of the announcement of the closing of the phase and should be addressed to the higher authority through the bidding committee or auctioneer.

    Appeals will be disclosed on the business day following the closing date for the submission of appeals, above stipulated, and bidders may challenge appeals filed within five business days from the disclosure of the appeals.

    Exceptionally, in reverse phase bidding cases, bidders may file appeals after the qualification and after the verification of effectiveness.

    Homologation, revocation and cancellation

    After the appeal stage, we can homologate the result, revoke the procedure or cancel it. In case of homologation, we will summon the winning bidder to sign the contractual instrument.

    When bids are canceled or revoked after the submission of bids, bidders may wish to contest it. Five working days will be granted for this purpose, counted from the disclosure of the annulment or revocation of the bid.

    The dispute shall be directed, through the bidding committee or the auctioneer, to the authority hierarchically superior to the one who practiced the contested act.
