EU sources -Social considerations in public procurement -November 17, 2015

In a recent judgment, the European Court of Justice has specified its position formulated in the Rüffert-case on the application of minimum wages in public procurement procedures. In its judgment, the Court holds that Directive 2004/18 does not preclude legislation that requires tenderers and their subcontractors to undertake, by means of a written declaration enclosed with their tender, to pay staff called upon to perform the services a predetermined minimum wage. According to the Court, the obligation at issue constitutes a special condition in principle acceptable under the directive, since it relates to the performance of the contract and concerns social considerations.
