Our readers in local and regional authorities will be interested to note this survey which can be accessed here:
The survey is open for responses until Monday May 13th. 2019
It is being conducted by the Council of European Municipalities and Regions (CEMR) and the European Committee of the Regions (CoR) and is aimed primarily at local and regional authorities.
“Considering the key role of subnational governments in local public markets, through their spending on goods and services, construction and public works, the CoR has started to analyse the challenges and opportunities faced by regions and cities in implementing the new legal framework.”
“By responding to this survey, you will help COR to identify these key challenges and to gather the views of regions and cities on the types of policy needed to help overcome them.”
The CoR .is expected to publish the survey results in May 2019 in a summary paper that will be circulated to all respondents. They will also feed into the CoR opinion on the implementation of the 2014 Directives on public procurement.
“If you represent a local or a regional authority (official, politician, or other), or if you are a stakeholder acting at regional or local level, and you are potentially impacted by the EU Public Procurement Directives, we would like to hear from you!”
All responses will be kept confidential
