Brief: The efficient implementation of public procurement (PP) poses a challenge to many MS, particularly in the context of ESIF. Irregularities and inefficient procedures, as well as limited administrative capacity are some examples of challenges faced. Individual MS have developed solutions to many common issues. The Commission wants to promote the sharing of these good practices. During the workshop DG REGIO will present an e-Library of PP practices, MS practitioners will present three practices in tackling some of procurement challenges in different MS: use of standardised tender documents, lifecycle costing tools and skills and competency framework for PP professionals.

Target audience:
  • EU, national, regional and local policy/decision makers
  • Authorities managing and evaluating cohesion policy programmes and projects
  • Academics, students and researchers
  The workshop is fully booked.
