Consultation on the modernisation of EU public procurement policy (until 18.04.2011)

Europa - Public procurement is confronted today with new challenges: high public deficits and thus the need for the most efficient use of public money but also the growing demand that public purchasing contributes to the achievement of overall societal goals (innovation, fighting climate change and promoting social inclusion). This consultation launches a public debate on how legislation could be updated to help public procurers cope with these challenges. The Commission will draw on the contributions to the consultation in preparing the future legislative proposal on the reform of the EU public procurement rules.
