Answer given by Mr Breton
on behalf of the European Commission
Question reference: P-000287/2020

Following some delays, today the quality of transposition of the 2014 Public Procurement Directives(1) is overall satisfactory. Having said that, there are ongoing partial communication and non-conformity infringement procedures concerning individual countries and issues.

As the transposition of the directives by Member States was delayed on average by two years, the publication of the report pursuant Article 92 of Directive 2014/24/EU originally foreseen for April 2019 is delayed accordingly.

One major simplification as a result of the 2014 Directives is the consequence of a full deployment of electronic procurement which should facilitate participation of business in tender procedures.

This has only been mandatory as of October 2018 and hence the benefits are only being felt gradually. The Commission will continue to closely monitor the implementation of the directives and evaluate the concrete experiences of national authorities and business with the current regime.
