Concession for performing services for the labour market

A local or foreign legal entity with head office in the Republic of Slovenia can obtain the concession, if they have appropriate staff, business premises and equipment for performing their activity. The concession is granted by the ministry competent for labour which implements all rights and obligations of the concession provider in the name of the state. 

The concession is granted based on a public tender for a maximum three-year period. The concession commission opens the offers in 30 days after the expiry of the deadline for the application to the public tender. The concession commission establishes for each offer whether it has been sent on time or if it was submitted by a bidder who fulfils the prescribed conditions, if the bid is submitted for a geographical area where a specific type of service is implemented as is determined in the tender, and if it is complete with regard to the text of the public tender.

The concession commission examines and assesses the complete offers according to the criteria of the public tender within 60 days after the conclusion of the public tender at the latest, and they prepare a proposal for granting concessions. 

The ministry competent for labour issues one decision on the granting of concession with regard to all bids for a determined geographical area where an individual type of services should be implemented. This decision provides the concession to the best bidder or bidders and determines the duration of concession in accordance with the tender and at the same time rejects other bids. 

The ministry competent for labour manages the register on granted concessions.

The concessionaire cooperates with the Employment Office at the exchange of information about the offer and demand in the labour market.

Individual public tenders determine detailed conditions and required documentation.
