EU Parliament votes in strong support of pre-commercial procurement

(26/02/2009) The EU Parliament has voted on a resolution strongly supporting the Commission's Communication on pre-commercial procurement.

The EU Parliament has voted on a resolution strongly supporting the Commission's Communication on pre-commercial procurement. Pre-commercial procurement (PCP) can enable public authorities to improve the quality and effectiveness of public services - such as in health care, public transport, energy, environment, security etc - whilst creating opportunities for European companies to take international leadership in new markets. Calls for proposals to encourage awareness raising, networking and experience sharing on pre-commercial procurement are currently open under FP7-ICT-WP2009 Call4 - objective 9.3 (b). More information is available on the PCP CORDIS website.
