Evaluation of Military Logistics Vehicles in Public Procurement
Keywords:evaluation criteria, military logistics vehicles, public procurement
The current geopolitical situation in the Europe is forcing some countries to modernize the equipment and armaments of their armies and to prepare for response to potential threats. It is difficult to assess the advantageousness and quality of military logistics vehicles to be purchased when there are different perceptions of the functionality of the product among future users, and in particular when the quality assessment tools are not perfect and the available and statutory quality assessment tools are hardly used in tendering procedures. This article presents the methodology for the evaluation of military logistics vehicles in public procurement. The proposed methodology allows comparing military logistics vehicles on the basis of economic and technical criteria and assessing the needs of different users.
