PARLT CTTEE GREEN-LIGHTS BILL ON CHANGING PUBLIC PROCUREMENT RULES

 

Parliament’s legislative committee has voted to allow changes to the law on public procurement that would broaden the range of exemptions from the procedure to be further debated. Under the proposal, which the national assembly will vote on next week, goods produced or services provided by “start-up cooperatives” — companies with an annual turnover of no more than 10 million forints (EUR 3,100) — could in the future be purchased without a public procurement procedure. According to the justification of the proposal, the change will help local ventures and ensure that public institutions obtain goods produced locally.  The design and manufacture of high state awards would also be exempted from public procurement requirements.
