Priority question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 138
Liesje Schreinemacher
 Subject: Review of public procurement directive

Article 92 of Directive 2014/24/EU on public procurement stipulates a review of the directive in the form of a Commission report to the Parliament and the Council by 18 April 2019. However, according to the Commission, the review was postponed because not all Member States had fully implemented the directive by that time. While the directive provides an adequate legal framework for public procurement across the single market, its implementation and the application procedures leave room for improvement. Guidance on implementation is also lacking.

Does the Commission consider that all Member States have sufficiently transposed the directive into their own national laws?

Pursuant to Article 92 of Directive 2014/24/EU, when does the Commission plan to review the directive and adopt the first implementation report?

Many businesses in the EU encounter difficulties as a result of complex tender proposals and procedures. This is also illustrated by the relatively high percentage of public tenders only receiving a single bid (1) . How will the Commission ensure that it remains economically viable for businesses to apply for a tender?
