The Procurement policy group is aimed at senior managers from international businesses that bid for public-sector tenders in Poland, and also at lawyers and consultants specialising in this area. The group was formed so that members can speak freely about problems encountered with the public procurement process in Poland and to draw up suggestions for improving procedures and transparency. Crucial to the group's effectiveness is the fact that at each meeting, policy-makers, regulators and lawyers representing the public sector are present. The group also seeks to showcase UK best practice when it comes to enhancing the professionalism in the procurement process.

Good procurement practice, and the new Polish public procurement law.

There are only few days left to the entry into force of the amendment to the Public Procurement Law implementing  in Poland the EU Directive from 2014.

Public procurement and the way it works in practice in Poland has been heavily criticised by foreign - and Polish - business.
