It is customarily reported that in Europe public authorities spend approximately 19% of their GDPs on works, goods and services. Less well known is that public procurement Directives cover only a small percentage of such expenditure. Based on EU data, currently only 20% of the value of public contracts awarded in Europe is above threshold or fully within the scope of public procurement Directives. From this perspective, the need to find new solutions to create an effective internal market for public procurement in the EU becomes evident. IT solutions seem to become strategic in order to better enforce non-discrimination efficiency and transparency principles and encourage crossborder participation. A wider implementation of IT solutions might be the solution for the future of public procurement.
