Description (short summary):
The Italian Presidency of the Public Procurement Network (PPN) has launched a comparative survey on the existing Public Procurement system in European countries, with regard to national legislation, the institutional system and the review procedures.
Since the approval of EC Directives 2004/18 and 2004/17, the Public Procurement system has significantly changed in EU countries, both in the legislative and in the institutional framework. The study aims at providing an update of the national legislation and the structures responsible for Public Procurement in Europe, within the key disciplines of the existing EU framework.
The survey involved the 27 EU countries and also non-EU countries such as the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Norway, Switzerland and Turkey.
The study also provides useful information to contracting authorities and economic operators, by giving an update of the legal, institutional and review framework on Public Procurement in Europe.
