Flagging up the big issues - EU procurement reform guide 2016

The European Union countries are in the process of one of the most important reforms of the public procurement system in the recent years. The reform takes the form of transposition of the package of three EU directives on public procurement and concessions.

Eversheds Sutherland has published the “EU Public Procurement Reform Guide 2016” on the status of implementation of the new procurement directives in the European Union.

How can we help?

The “EU Procurement Reform Guide 2016” covers 19 EU countries where our public procurement practice teams are present. It has also been supplemented with information about Switzerland. The knowledge contained in the guide will allow contractors thinking about participating in procedures for award of public contracts outside the borders of their own countries to quickly find out the specifics of public procurement in different EU countries.

Among other things, the guide shows that in many countries an entirely new public procurement law was adopted, and in those where the existing regulations were amended there are problems with full implementation of the new directives. The publication also includes data on the number of appeals lodged in individual countries.

Why work with us?

Our procurement team has strong sector experience in local government, education, health, regeneration, defence and transport which complements and is complemented by the sector focus within our procurement teams with key individuals having wider governance and contractual backgrounds in the sectors.
