'Low-value contracts' procedures

Ex-ante publicity of middle and low-value contracts

Simplified rules apply to calls for tenders valued between €15,000 and €135,000. In such cases, the European Commission can invite a restricted number of candidates to tender.

To make this process more transparent, the Commission must publish its plans for future middle and low-value contracts. On this page, you will find information on the envisaged negotiated procedures for middle and low-value contracts from the Directorate-General for Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs (DG).

If you are interested in providing the goods or services required, contact the email address provided below at least 3 days before the indicative launch date.

This schedule is indicative only.
