Public Procurement Policy

The field of public procurement in Estonia is regulated by the Public Procurement Act and supplemented with several regulations of the Government of Estonia. The Ministry of Finance is the responsible institution for public procurement policy, drafting the law, providing supervision and consulting.

Public Procurement notices are published on-line in the central State Public Procurement Register and the information is accessible free of charge for all contracting authorities and suppliers. Additionally it is possible for suppliers to access electronic tendering documents in case the contracting authority has made them available in the register. The number of public procurements carried out in Estonia in 2012 was ca 9000 with the total value of close to 1,6 billion euros, which amounts to 12% of GDP.
