BRUSSELS (Reuters) – The European Fee introduced on Wednesday it was suing Poland within the EU’s prime courtroom for failure to completely apply EU public procurement guidelines.
The Fee stated Polish legal guidelines exempted two classes of contracts from the applying of the general public procurement guidelines: contracts for the manufacturing and distribution of sure public paperwork and contracts for the supply of financial institution decision providers.
“Whereas the EU public procurement directives permit for sure exemptions for contracts to be awarded with no aggressive name for tenders, the Fee considers that these don’t apply to the broad classes of contracts exempted by the Polish legislation,” the Fee stated.
“The Fee considers that the Polish exemptions for the manufacturing and distribution of public paperwork and financial institution decision providers infringe EU legislation,” it stated.
