Languages of publication
This paper presents an analysis of selected criteria for choosing the most suitable contractor in a public procurement process, and for appointing the contractor whose tender best meets the criteria used in Poland, Germany, United Kingdom and France. The national procurement regulations are based on the European directive 2004/18/EC that allows for an objective multi-criteria assessment of a tender offer. As foreign examples prove, the procedures used in the process of tenders’ evaluation, followed by a selection of the best bidder, vary, depending on the country of their application. Moreover, they show that the lowest price is not the most appropriate choice for the contracting authorities, if they adhere to the rule ‘value for money’.
