What is public procurement?
Public procurement refers to the process by which public authorities, such as government departments or local authorities, purchase labor, goods or services from private suppliers.
EU law sets out minimum harmonized public procurement rules. These are specifically transposed into national legislation. The rules apply to tenders whose monetary value exceed a certain amount. Transparent, fair and competitive public procurement across the EU’s Single Market generates business opportunities, drives economic growth and creates jobs.
Therefore, all above mentioned subjects are bound to enter contracts through only transparent public tenders. It also means all possible economic operators are allowed to submit the award procedure. The submission is made by the offer of the tenderer. The offer must prove the qualification and offer any criteria to be evaluated.
