Implementing public procurement rules at local and regional level: challenges and opportunities

Regional and Local Affairs
Date: Wednesday, 15 May 2019 11:00 - 13:00

Venue: European Committee of the Regions - room JDE 53

The shift from traditional patterns of procurement towards an approach that regards public procurement as a strategic tool to deliver public policy objectives in innovation, environmental protection and social inclusion makes public procurement a key building block of EU's policies aimed to stimulate growth and remove barriers to investment.

The workshop will be an opportunity to look into whether relevant authorities are making full use of the possibilities offered by the EU public procurement rules; present best practices but also the most frequent sources of wrong application or of legal uncertainty and elaborate on ways to encourage a paradigm shift in the public sector towards more entrepreneurial and innovative approaches.  

Key findings of the CoR study and of the survey carried out in cooperation with the Council of European Municipalities and Regions (CEMR) on the implementation of the public procurement Directives at regional and local levels will serve as an input to a panel debate on the opportunities and challenges of strategic procurement for local and regional authorities and on possible avenues for improving the implementation of the Directives on the ground. The debate will also feed into the CoR opinion on the implementation of the Directives.
