Conference on the Modernisation of EU Public Procurement Policy - 30 June 2011

see also: Intergroup 110412

Towards a more efficient European Procurement Market

Commissioner Michel Barnier invites all stakeholders interested in public procurement to discuss the future orientations for the modernisation of the EU legislative framework for public procurement. At this Conference, the Commission will present the results of the ex-post evaluation of the existing legislation and the public consultation via the Green Paper launched in January this year.

The various players of the European procurement market will discuss these findings and exchange views on the possible ways forward to a modernised EU public procurement policy. These discussions will provide a significant contribution to the preparation of the legislative proposal.

Help us shape the future European framework for public purchasing by participating in this conference.
