There are currently some technical problems with this website and some links may be broken.  We are working to resolve the problem.

Calls for Tenders

European legislation requires that tenders for public contracts where the amounts exceed a certain threshold, which varies according to the type of contract, be published in the Official Journal S series, which can be consulted free of charge in the TED database.

Further information on the EU policy on public procurement can be found on the Commission's website
