    Abstract

    Affordable and timely implementation of complex infrastructure projects is crucial to the completion of the EU Internal Market and meeting deadlines for the implementation of EU environmental legislation. Competitive Dialogue was created by the 2004 Public Procurement Directives as a new and more flexible solution for public authorities wanting to award contracts for such projects. But some predicted that it might be used only rarely and others saw problems in applying it effectively to obtain value for money for the public sector. Yet it is now firmly established in Europe as a means of awarding public contracts, with more than 3000 award procedures launched. This article assesses how and where the procedure has been used so far and the challenges at European and national level for using it effectively in future.
