Attendance of the Second Edition of the European Regional Infrastructure Conference ”Consulting Engineering in European Public Procurement”
Published Date: 19.03.2016   

The Conference was mainly held on the occasion of the imminent implementation deadline (April, 2016) of the new EU Procurement Directives.

The Second Edition of the European Regional Infrastructure Conference was held on the 7 and 8 of March this year in Krakow, Poland, at the initiative of the Consulting Engineers and Experts of Poland Association (SiDIR), with the support of the International Federation of Consulting Engineers (FIDIC) and the European Federation of Engineering Consultancy Associations (EFCA).

The Conference was focused mainly on the following issues:

1.New UE Procurement Directives – their practical use;

2.FIDIC Contract Conditions in context with the European legislation on Procurement

The Conference was attended by accredited FIDIC experts and representatives of Associations of Consulting Engineers, legal experts and lawyers, having relevance to the implementation of FIDIC Contracts, as well as representatives of European government authorities.

The speakers expressed their opinion about the encountered challenges during the adjustment of national legislations to the EU Directives, about the national practical use of FIDIC Contracts and problems related to such practice. Thus, the big change of the new Directive, compared with the previous one, is the tender-based awarding criteria, and namely the single award criterion (MEAT) – the Most Economically Advantageous Tender, unlike those two criteria under the previous Directives: the lowest price and the most economically advantageous tender.

There were also given examples of BVP method (Best Value Procurement), used, for example, in Netherlands, as it is considered a more advanced quality-based method of selection.

Attendance of this event was an opportunity for our organization to learn new things, taking into account that our organization is currently working together with the Public Procurement Agency in drafting new normative documents on procurement of consultancy services.  At the same time it was a good chance to learn how to what extent are the FIDIC model contracts implemented in the national practice of some European countries - given that they are not yet used at the local level in our country.
