Legislation and Methodology

The legislative regulation in the field of public procurement in Bulgaria dates back from 1997, when the Law on the award of state and municipal procurement was adopted. This law has been repealed by the adoption of the Public Procurement Law in 1999.

Effective to present day, the Public Procurement Law (prom. SG No 13/16 February 2016, in force as of 15 April 2016), has been aimed to implement the new EU Public Procurement Directives (adopted by the European Parliament on 26 February 2014.):

- Directive 2014/24/EU of 26 February 2014 of the European Parliament and the Council on public procurement;

- Directive 2014/25/EU of 26 February 2014 on procurement by entities operating in the water, energy, transport and postal services sectors.

Beside the framework law, the new rules for implementation have been drafted and adopted by CMD No 73 of 05.04.2016, prom. SG No 28/8 April 2016 г., which covers in detail the public procurement rules.

The public procurement law aims to ensure effectiveness in spending of:

- public funds;

- European funds and programs;

- funds related to the performance of certain activities of public relevance.
