    "deliver" and "convergence"

    Hello,

    could you please explain the meaning of the expressions "deliver" and "convergence" in the following sentence concerning amendments in public procurement directives:

    The wording "preliminary definition" implies that the participants deliver the awarding authority´s requirements in their proposals (convergence solution - needs).

    Thank you very much.

    I'm not sure that "deliver" is the correct word. This seems to be a situation in which individuals/companies are competing for the rights to do something. They are submitting proposals to some decision-making authority. The authority has detailed some requirements that must be satisfied/fulfilled/met.
    Unless the context suggests otherwise, I think satisfy/fulfill/meet would all be better choices.

    I don't know what "convergence" means there. It may be a label for the type of clause that precedes it. If that is true, then "convergence" means "meeting" and it refers to a clause about "meeting requirements", but that is all a guess on my part.
