Advisory Service on Public Procurement Law

In the last few years, the market of public procurement has developed into a major economic factor in the European Union. Due to the supply, service and construction work assignments requested from public authorities that run into billions, this market represents an interesting field of business for companies in many industry sectors. Participation in tenders of other Member States of the European Union extends the possibilities to acquire lucrative contracts for the own company. Not least due to the size of its domestic market, Poland in particular offers business opportunities for medium-sized companies from all over Europe.

The public procurement market has grown continuously in recent years, although the growth potential of the market is far from exhausted i.e. due to the high investment demand. According to the Office for Public Procurement in Warsaw, the construction, supply and service contracts awarded in 2014 by public authorities in Poland reached a total value of about 133 billion PLN. This corresponds to a total order value of 33 billion euros. The value of public orders awarded in 2013 amounted to approx.143 billion PLN (35 billion euros). About 3/4 of the orders advertised throughout Europe in 2014 were granted within the framework of an open tendering procedure (82%). This means that in these cases all interested companies had the possibility to submit offers without a preceding competition.
