The English press release is here:

That links to a PDF where they describe the requirements.  On page 5 it says:

"The code implementing the use cases must be delivered to OSBA in two
versions: one suitable for
LibreOffice integration, one suitable for Apache OpenOffice
integration. That means each version of the
code changes must be developed, rebased and tested against a commit of
the respective project that
is not older than 60 days at the time of the delivery."

And then later on that page:

"The contractor must publish the software source code developed for
this project under license suitable
for integration in the respective projects, ideally dual licensed
Apache License Version 2.0, and Mozilla
Public License Version 2.0. The contractor may choose to publish under
Apache License Version 2.0

So it looks like regardless of who bids and wins, the results will be
available for AOO to use as well.
