EU to present an e-Library of public procurement good practices

Matteo Natalucci Published 21 September 2017

The e-Library will provide a set of good practices and solutions to common public procurement challenges


The European Commission will next month unveil a new tool for sharing of good practices to improve the compliance and quality of public procurement across the EU.

It hopes the e-Library will offer a number of tangible benefits from the sharing of good practices in the area of public procurement such as improved efficiency and effectiveness, and better value-for-money.

The e-Library will be presented on the year's edition of the European Week of Regions and Cities (Brussels 9 -12 October 2017) at a special workshop called "Procurement for better results: sharing of good practices". The event is open to national, regional and local policy/decision makers as well as authorities managing and evaluating cohesion policy programmes and projects.

The audience will have the opportunity to discover the e-Library’s features and functionalities. Public procurement practitioners from EU member states will then present their own practical solutions and concrete results in the field of standardised tender documentation drafting, skills and competency transfers and lifecycle costing tools

Efficient public procurement is a challenge to many EU member states as irregularities and lengthy procedures, as well as limited administrative capacity pose a burden to the process.

The e-Library is part of the Commission's action plan on public procurement and aims to ensure the compliance and quality of public procurement across the Union.
