The Guideline provides for areas of the public forestry and pasture fund that may be leased according to the public competition/bidding procedures. The forestry authorities assess the forestry and pasture areas at the beginning of the year and submit the proposed list of leases to the municipality together with a detailed report on their potential use. The leases should comply with the law requirements regarding the allowed activities as well as the long- and short-term management plans. Further, the Guideline sets forth the institutional and regulatory frameworks for the auction procedures including rules of procedure for lease advertising, bids evaluation, and lease awards. Templates of the technical- economical evaluation reports are attached to the guidelines.
