New Rules for Public Procurement benefit SME's

New rules in public procurement designed to facilitate SME participation in public procurement were introduced by the Department of Finance in August 2010.


The government recognises that the small and medium (SME) sector is very important to the economy and that public procurement can be an important source of business for SMEs.

In the present economic climate, the competition for public contracts has intensified and some SMEs are finding it more difficult to win such business. The government has stated that SMEs are not to be hindered in competing for contracts that they could perform effectively.

The changes


The changes above will lead to more opportunities for SME’s to win public contracts.
