Public procurement is not exempt from the trend towards electronic communication and contracting. The aim of the EU’s Public Procurement Directive is to introduce electronic communications at all stages of public procurement procedures between contracting authorities and tenderers. The 30-month transition period given by the Directive is almost over, and all Member States are required to comply with e-public procurement obligations by 18 October 2018.
Our guide provides a snapshot of how the implementation process is progressing in eight CEE countries and outlines the main characteristics of the national e-public procurement systems. The aim is to provide an overview for economic operators that are interested in, or engaged with public procurement procedures in the CEE region.
