European Seminar Defence and Security Procurement

Regulatory Framework – Collaborative Procurement – Article 346 TFEU


Defence and Security Procurement remains one of the most challenging procurement fields within the public sector

Defence and security procurements are in many ways different from ordinary procurements. The defence market is fundamentally fragmented and the choice of suppliers is fairly limited. At the same time, public authorities are obliged to follow European and domestic procurement procedures that demand them to publicise call for tenders and choose among several bidders.
