The European Single Procurement Document briefing paper

Abstract

The European Single Procurement Document (ESPD) came into force on 26 Jan. 2016, is now aligned to UK procurements and its digital implementation across Europe will be completing in 2017 - What more do you need to know and do?

The new EU Procurement Directives made provision for the introduction of a European Single Procurement Document (ESPD). This replaces the requirement for suppliers to provide up-front evidence or certificates by allowing them to self-declare that they meet the relevant selection and exclusion criteria. Bidders will now only be asked to provide proof of this at a later stage.

This is intended by the European Commission to remove some of the barriers to participation in public procurement, especially for Small and Medium Enterprise's (SME's). Significantly this standardisation also ensures international compliance, so that the same ESPD may also equally be used in any European member state. For this reason it also known colloquially as the European Procurement ‘Passport’.
