Contractors worried about public procurement practice in Poland

Contractors active in public works contracts in Poland are profoundly worried about the severe deterioration of public procurement practice.

In fact, for some time already, various changes of both the Public Procurement Law and the internationally recognised FIDIC contract conditions have led to a situation which is being considered as grossly unfair, counter-productive and unacceptable by the contractors.

FIEC and EIC, with its partners in Poland, would like to contribute constructively to avoiding a further deterioration of the situation which would have dramatic consequences not only for Polish contractors, but also for Poland as such, a country whose achievements in the European Union so far have to be applauded.

FIEC and EIC have formed a joint Working Group with representatives of more than 25 European companies active in the Polish market. The working group held its first meeting in Brussels on 21 November 2012 and will come together again in Warsaw on 13 February 2013.
