    At the height of the COVID-19 crisis in Europe, the European Commission published guidance on options and flexibilities for Member States under the EU public procurement framework in the light of this emergency situation. Concerns have been aired, however, that contracts may have been awarded without any competitive tendering and away from public scrutiny. As a result, taxpayers’ money could easily be wasted on overpriced equipment or substandard services. This Briefing will examine the Guidance look at the publication of notices for medical equipment, and discuss possible implications of the COVID-19 crisis for procurement.
