Public Procurement and Cloud Service Providers in the European Union

The public procurement process in the EU is a complicated, multi-pronged, multi-institution process requiring bidding businesses to navigate several levels of rules and regulations. This report provides a snapshot of our capacity to deconstruct the complexities of EU procurement rules.

Cloud procurement across the European Union (EU) and its member states can present a number of challenges to cloud service providers who wish to operate in Europe.

The public procurement process in the EU is a complicated, multi-pronged, multi-institution process requiring bidding businesses to navigate several levels of rules and regulations. At the EU level, general procurement rules and regulations are bound by the 2014 Directive, which sets harmonised procedural rules for procurement practices across all EU member states.

While the EU does not set specific rules on cloud procurement, EU authorities have put in place guidance for procuring agencies to consider when seeking cloud services, particularly in the financial sector. At the national member-state level, cloud procurement is additionally affected by supplemental sets of national frameworks, regulations and guidance.
