In March 2014 Parliament adopted three directives for public procurement. The rules on procurement were clear, aimed to make the most efficient, consistent and transparent contracts.
Spain has not met the target as the deadline to be established was this past April 18, 2016.
In the bulletin of the European Union on March 28, the three directives relating to public procurement (two on public procurement and concession contracts, and on energy and transport) which was approved on February 26 published 2014.
Through Finance, the Central government introduced in April last year (2015), a draft bill of the law of public sector contracts, together with an observation period ending in May of the same year.
Since then, still waiting to reconnect with the project, which still has not been presented in Parliament to discuss new approval, or the Council of Ministers to make bill.
After the general elections of 20-D, the document has been stopped, and after everything has already been a year.
For these European directives are implemented, they require approval by the country which in turn transposes with its own laws. But by law they are required to implement them, but for that to happen, the state in question is free to decide how, when and by what means comply.
