The Public Contract Code highlights two essential and interconnected goals: the betterment of acquisition procedures, covering a great number of both public and private institutions, associated with the implementation of a dematerialised pre-contractual procedure based on a system of electronic platforms.
Therefore, both for contracting institutions and competing entities, the principles of sound management and efficiency and effectiveness in the contractual process must allow for economically and socially rational decisions.
