Act on public contracts amended from January 2016

The amendment to the act on public contracts will come into force in January 2016. Under the new regulation, it will be possible to abolish the duty to cancel a procurement procedure if only one bid is submitted. The bill re-introduces economic qualifications on condition that a bidder’s annual turnover should not exceed twice the amount of the estimated value of the public contract. According to Boøivoj Líbal, managing partner at PwC Legal, the so-called simplified public procurement regime may be disputable. The simplified regime may be applied in awarding public contracts for healthcare and social care services, legal services, prison-related services, public security and rescue services as well as for hotel, restaurant and postal services.
