The Remedies Directives set minimum national review standards to ensure that rapid and effective means of redress are available in all EU countries when an economic operator that has an interest in a public procurement procedure believes that it has been run without proper application of the EU Public Procurement Directives.
The European Commission contracted RPA to evaluate whether the Remedies Directives were meeting these requirements. RPA's work inolved extensive resarch and stakeholder engagement across the EU. As might be expected, the procedures for both public procurement and remedies vary considerably from country to country. The main finding was that not enough information on national public procurement remedies systems is being collected in a structured manner which hinders the use of information for policy-making.
