Course Description

Public procurement is a process that occurs when a government organization or a public authority purchases from external suppliers. Public authorities in Europe spend over €2000 billion a year purchasing goods and services, and this huge purchasing power forces suppliers to become more innovative as they have to produce higher quality products at lower prices. Public authorities in Europe have introduced procurement rules which are designed to increase competition between suppliers.

  • Joseph Hazeley
    Joseph Hazeley Sierra Leone The essence of European Public Procurement rules has its focus more on stimulating free and fair competition among suppliers who have the capacity or the potential to supply . The whole process of buyers interest is to adopt an objective thereby forcing them to innovate goods , services and works thereby encouraging them to produce better quality products at lower prices. The EU principles of transparency, proportionality, equal treatment, and non-discrimination among supplies are the golden rules of European public procurement . Public procurement has over the years developed to ensure competition between suppliers and therefore such process must be govern by the principle of transparency and openness wherein suppliers will be confident to participate in an open contest free from intimidation and discrimination . 2016-01-27 15:01:40
