CMS Public Procurement Guide

19 Jurisdictions covered


In this CMS guide to public procurement we set out the key rules, thresholds, and procedures for contracting authorities and suppliers, indicate whether it is mandatory or voluntary to use e-procurement or e-signatures, and detail the extent to which procurement contracts can be amended after being awarded.

Our public procurement specialists cover the key questions concerning access to and the conduct of public procurement competitions. They also highlight the key similarities and important differences between the national regimes in 19 countries: Austria, Bulgaria, China, Colombia, Croatia, Czech Republic, France,Germany, Hungary, Italy, Montenegro, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Serbia, Slovakia, Spain, Switzerland and Turkey. We expect updates from other jurisdictions where we have public procurement expertise in the coming months.
