Public procurement is the process used for purchasing products and services within the public sector. The rules are harmonized throughout the EU/EEA and are based on EU directives. The aim of the rules is to ensure that a supplier is selected purely for business reasons and because the chosen supplier is the one that offers the best product/service/construction project at the best price.
