New legislative proposals – 20.12.2011
In December 2011, as announced in the Single Market Act, the Commission adopted its proposals on public procurement. These proposals are part of an overall programme aiming at an in-depth modernization of public procurement in the European Union. This programme includes the revision of Directive 2004/17/EC (procurement in the water, energy, transport and postal services sectors) and 2004/18/EC (public works, supply and service contracts), as well as the adoption of a directive on concessions, which were until now only partially regulated at European level.
