As of today, i.e. April 16, 2014, the threshold for public procurement contracts is increased. The threshold for an obligatory application of the public procurement procedure is now EUR 30,000, while previously it was EUR 14,000. This modification is particularly important for typical awarding entities.
In the case of all contracts awarded below the new threshold there is no requirement to apply the statutory procedure. The threshold for public procurement awards in the Polish currency is PLN 126,747.00.
The situation is less advantageous only to the awarding entities that have already started the procedures, i.e. their notices have already been published. In such cases, the previous threshold of EUR 14,000 is still applicable.
