New rules on public contracts and concessions
Simpler and more flexible
Public contracts and concessions are tools to modernise the public sector and contribute to a more equitable and sustainable model of growth. The rules we have adopted will allow public policymakers to use these tools more effectively, and at the same time make the best use of taxpayers' money. The simplification and legal certainty brought about by this reform will mean that public contracts can be managed more easily and effectively, with savings in terms of time and resources for both public clients and enterprises, in particular SMEs. Social inclusion, the environment and innovation are... also recognised as priorities in their own right, allowing public policymakers to opt for the best offer rather than simply the cheapest one.
