Bill would transpose EU directives into public procurement law
Hungarian lawmakers yesterday submitted a bill to Parliament that would transpose new European Union directives into national law on public procurements, Hungarian news agency MTI reported.
All member states must transpose the new directives into national law by April 18, 2016, however, the deadlines for bringing rules on electronic public procurement in line with EU norms and for applying the rules universally are not until April 2017 and October 2018, respectively.
Under the bill, the new directives would allow member states a broader opportunity to integrate public procurement policy with strategic goals, such as innovation, social aims – including job creation – and environmental sustainability.
