Commission’s guidance on third country bidders in EU procurement market
It also aims to raise awareness among contracting authorities of the different instruments available in the EU public procurement toolbox (i.e. Directive 2014/24/EU). There is nothing very new here, unfortunately… However, it does confirm that the provision on abnormally low tenders (article 69 of Directive 2014/24/EU) is not effective in tackling tenders from non-EU State-owned companies.
As long as contracting authorities are free to accept non-GPA bidders AND abnormally low tenders are not regulated in a stricter way, this is a lost cause!

We wish you a great summer!
