The average per unit is 2.74. Last year, 2018+ competed with 52 units, for which companies submitted 196 bids. The average per unit was then 3.77.
The number of companies that have entered the current tender is the lowest since 2011 when the company launched a tendering procedure for the procurement procedure for the 2012 + 2012 financial year. The first 2012 bid was on the whole of the Czech Republic's forest area, since around one-fifth of the territory competes. The average number of bids on the individual parts of the bid decreases with the decrease of the registered companies in tenders.
The biggest interest among the forest management companies in the Czech Republic was in the 2012 bid, when 56 companies left a total of 1504 offers on 117 competitive units. There were almost 13 offers per unit. From the 2015 Bid, the average number of bids per unit dropped from 8.4 to 2.7 this year. This is also due to the fact that companies no longer bid on all parts of the offer without focusing on entities within their area of expertise.
