Classification and advertising systems
Under the provisions of Law 31/2007, tenders published on the contractor's profile must be complemented by participation in the following common systems for supplier classification:
- Register of Transport Suppliers (Protrans), along with other companies in the public transport sector, in order to have an effective, permanently updated, objective and non-discriminatory tool that allows for the appropriate selection of suppliers and contractors.
- Energy rating system, along with other companies in the railway sector, in order to make energy purchases based on an economy of scale that allows a joint approach to be made to the energy market.
- Classification system for making a weekly tender for supplies of Diesel A for use in the bus fleet intended for the transport of passengers.
- Classification system for supplies related to supplying buses for the TMB fleet.
TMB uses these systems as a tool for selecting suppliers in restricted and negotiated procedures, a tool that allows them to be registered in an effective, permanently updated, objective and non-discriminatory way, as well as making contracting a sufficiently smooth process. Registering for the Classification Systems is permanently available to any interested supplier.
In addition, TMB will shortly be using other contractual devices provided for by Law 9/2017, such as the Electronic Register of Bidding Companies (RELI) or the Company Classification system of the Advisory Board which complements the Public Service Contract Platform of the Government of Catalonia.
TMB is part owner of Protrans (Register of Transport Suppliers), an online tool for the efficient classification and registration of suppliers and contractors, along with other companies: that are also engaged in urban passenger transport: "Eusko Trenbideak - Ferrocarriles Vascos, S.A.U." (EUSKOTREN), "Euskal Trenbide Sarea, S.A." (ETS), "Metro de Madrid, S.A.", "Empresa Municipal de Transportes de Madrid, S.A."
