More information

The Decree states that the lowest price is no longer the primary criteria in public procurement, but will be considered also quality and socially and environmentally responsible criteria, such as policies on gender balance, diversity, labour conditions and environment. The text of the decree is clear on the requirement for suppliers to NOT have negative impacts on labour conditions.• Regarding transparency, the 2012 legislation already sought to promote transparency, but with this decree, non-financial information will be increasingly relevant for the City of Madrid when assessing suppliers• This policy is aligned with the EU Directive 2014/24/UE on Public Procurement in order to achieve the 2020 European strategy, in which public procurement plays a key role
