The purpose of the Guide to Procurement (the Guide) is to inform the Promoters of a project whose contracts are financed in whole or in part by the European Investment Bank (the Bank) - or are financed under loans guaranteed by the Bank - of the arrangements to be made for procuring works, goods and services required for the project.
This Guide applies specifically to those components of a project identified for the Bank's financing. However, in order to ensure the overall feasibility of the project, the Bank requires that procurement of the other project components does not compromise the project's technical, economic and financial viability.
The Guide was updated in September 2018 in order to take into account recent developments in EU procurement regulations and to incorporate new EIB policies.
The updated Guide (September 2018) replaces the June 2011 version, which remains available upon request at the EIB Infodesk.
