The Approach of EU Member States
Edited by Steen Treumer and Mario Comba
Chapter 12: The implementation of Directive 2014/24/EU in Sweden: a sanguine approach
This chapter provides a critical assessment of the implementation of Directive 2014/24/EU in the UK by the Public Contracts Regulations 2015. It explores the implications of the copy-out approach followed by the UK government in order to avoid gold-plating the transposition of the 2014 EU Public Procurement Package, as well as the deficiencies that result from the perspective of constructing a developed regulatory system. The analysis concentrates on selected novelties of Directive 2014/24/EU, as well as areas where Member States were granted discretion to choose between a set of options or to find their own mechanisms to achieve certain aims specified at EU level. The chapter concludes that the transposition in the UK was a missed opportunity to develop a full regulatory architecture for the control of public expenditure by means of procurement.
