Help with Spanish legislation

Message par N16gooner » 21 sept. 2007, 10:55

I work for a UK organisation that is a registered charity and public sector body and has an office in Spain. The office in Spain is going to be carrying out works that will exceed the EU thresholds seperately for goods, works and services in my opinion I think they are bound by EU procurement legislation, however the office in Spain reckon that as a charity and not a general public service body (in Spain I assume) are exempt from the rules.

Who is correct? Thanks

Hi, a charity organisation is obliged to respect tuhe EU rules if they use public funds (50% or more for the relative tender). I just found an interinting PDF document relative to this case : http://ec.europa.eu/employment_social/s ... ort_en.pdf

Other contributors would like to enlarge the reference to public authorities,
organisations close to public authorities with a specific public status, charity or welfare organisations, churches or their organisations, associations, mutualities, cooperatives or organisations consisting of volunteers.
