- Deadline: 18/04/2011
Public procurement accounts for roughly 17% of the EU’s GDP. In times of tight budgets,public procurement policy must ensure the most efficient use of public funds, with a view to supporting growth and job creation. This would require flexible tools that make transparent and competitive contract awards as easy as possible for public authorities. With these objectives in mind, the Commission has launched a consultation.
