The European Commission asks local and regional governments to assess its public procurement directives
The European Commission is carrying out a survey among local, regional and national authorities and utility companies. The aim of the survey is to collect the opinions of awarding authorities on the harmonised procedures laid down by these directives and information on some of the main costs and benefits of these directives.
The survey is to be filled out online and it will take about 30 minutes. For technical reasons it must be completed in one session of no more than one and a half hours. A handout aims to help preparing the replies, containing a description of the information that would be needed to complete the questionnaire. The questionnaire is available 11 languages on DG Internal Market's website.
The survey is carried out in the framework of a general evaluation on the public procurement directives conducted by the European Commission. The purpose of the evaluation is to provide an overall assessment of the economic impact of these directives, which came into effect during the period 1993 to 2002.
