Parliamentary questions
17 May 2018
E-000295/2018
Answer given by Ms Bieńkowska on behalf of the Commission

Based on the information available to the Commission services, at this stage, it is not possible to identify any irregularity in the application of public procurement rules to public contracts in which Carillion, being put under receivership, is involved.

Under the 2014 EU public procurement Directives(1), all contracting authorities have the possibility to evaluate the financial and economic standing of all bidders participating in a public tender, during the procurement process and prior to the award of the contract. Furthermore, in specific cases, the directives allow contracting authorities to also intervene after the award of the contract(2).

(1)Directive 2014/23/EU of the European Parliament and the Council of 26 February 2014 on the award of concession contracts; Directive 2014/24/EU of the European Parliament and the Council of 26 February 2014 on public procurement and repealing Directive 2004/18/EC; Directive 2014/25/EU of the European Parliament and the Council of 26 February 2014 on procurement by entities operating in the water, energy, transport and postal services and repealing Directive 2004/17/EC, OJ L 94.
(2)In this context, rf. to Article 72(1) letter (d) of Directive 2014/24/EU.
