VOB (German: "Vergabe- und Vertragsordnung für Bauleistungen") is the standard reference work for the construction industry with an influence extending far beyond Germany. It is the basis for all public construction contract and procurement procedures in Germany and is used for most private construction projects of substantial volume.
The VOB is divided into 3 sections:
