Why did the BMWi reform public procurement law?

The starting point for the reform of public procurement law are three new EU procurement directives. They lay down uniform requirements throughout Europe for the entire procurement process (“single-rule-book”). Affected are procurement procedures with high contract values (awards above the so-called EU thresholds).

The new directives have been transposed into German law since April 2016.

The reform has made the rules for awarding public contracts simpler, more flexible and more user-friendly. At the same time, public procurement has become more social, ecological and innovative (strategic procurement).
