Alongside the on-going reform of public procurement, the IMCO committee considered the Commission proposal on concessions contracts. This initiative sought to ensure a more efficient allocation of public money by establishing a single instrument regulating the competitive award of concessions contracts.

The proposed rules aimed at increasing legalcertainty for public authorities by establishing for the first time EU widerules to define the notion of risk and affirm important principles, such asfree administration and services of general economic interest.
