Minister of State for Public Procurement, Patrick O’Donovan T.D., today (Friday) welcomed Minister Donohoe’s signing into law a set of three Regulations updating the provision of remedies under the public procurement framework.

Introduced in 1989 the Remedies Regime allows tenderers or candidates who feel that a procurement process was not carried out in an open, fair and transparent manner the option of seeking recourse from the courts.

Today’s signing completes the process of aligning regulation of public procurement in Ireland with the reformed European public procurement regime as initiated in 2014 by the EU Commission.
