EU Public Procurement Rules / PRAG

2 days
8 sessions
12 hours
10-20 participants

Programme goals

IPA funds, intended to support RSM reforms, are usually governed by EU assistance rules outside the EU. Those rules are essentially the rules for public procurement, ie the implementation of procurement financed by public finances. PRAG (EC Guide) provides detailed guidelines and prescribed patterns to follow, but they have a logical sequence and justification for procedures.

In reality, PRAGUE acts discouragingly for users, but with the right direction these rules are understandable as well as national public procurement rules. It is the purpose of the training to encourage public and private organizations to use IPA funds, ie to prepare to follow the prescribed rules and procedures.
