SIGMA Public Procurement Briefs

  • Discontinued
SIGMA Public Procurement Briefs provide input for training systems that are in compliance with EU public procurement legislation and practices and with related national legislations. They contribute to the improvement of professional skills of procurement officers and managers – both in the public sector (contracting authorities) and the private sector (economic operators). Some of the briefs are available in other languages, namely Armenian, Azeri, Romanian and Russian


Incorporating Social Considerations into Procurement

Public procurement is becoming a policy strategy instrument: public procurement procedures can also help public purchasers to implement policies governing social integration. SIGMA Brief 14 offers guidance for Contracting Authorities on what can be considered as social considerations (e.g. reducing unemployment, preventing the use of child labour) and how these considerations can be incorporated into the procurement process in line with EU law.
