Major infrastructure and energy projects in CEE - Public procurement rules

  • Poland
  • Europe
  • Construction and engineering - Articles


The European Union will invest €170 billion in ten former Eastern block countries in Central and Eastern Europe between now and 2020. The majority of this money will be invested in major infrastructure and energy projects and be subject to public procurement rules.

With the global economy stuttering, this represents a significant opportunity for the construction/engineering industry. These projects will be viewed as relatively low risk compared to projects in emerging markets and offer revenue growth at a time when established western economies are not investing in major infrastructure/energy projects on this scale. International EPC Contractors, supply chain and consultancies will all be considering a focus on projects in this market place.

In this article, we focus on the characteristics of the tendering rules for public procurement projects in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE), look at how those rules are applied in Poland (the largest market in CEE) and how to avoid falling foul of the rules.
