The European Committee of the Regions (CoR) and the Council of European Municipalities are conducting a consultation on the 2014 Directives on Public Procurement. The Directives introduced a number of changes in the European legal framework for public procurement. They introduced new procedures to reduce red tape and provide easier access for SMEs, as well as stronger provisions on integrity and transparency, which target corruption and fraud, and a new focus on the role of public procurement in achieving policy goals in innovation, environmental protection and social inclusion. They also seek to strengthen the role of public procurement in achieving policy goals in innovation, environmental protection and social inclusion. The survey assesses the implementation of the 2014 Directives on public procurement, the challenges and opportunities at regional and local level. Local and regional authorities have an opportunity to have their say – here.
