This Directive sets rules for the procurement procedures of works, supplies or services regarding public contracts as well as design contests. A number of forms of PPP as the concept is understood by PPPLRC would be covered by this directive. It is especially relevant to small, micro and medium sized because the state members recognized their importance for the development and modernization of the region and uses this directive to facilitate their participation in public procurement and their access to the market.
The directive provides guidance on how to adapt the procurement process to the needs of SMEs by applying the ‘European Code of Best Practices Facilitating Access by SMEs to Public Procurement Contracts”, for example dividing large contracts into multiple smaller contracts.
