ec.europa.eu/europeaid/prag/document.do

From 2013 the changes are significant especially in relation to the thresholds for service, supply and works contracts (see Chapter: 2.4.1. Which procurement procedure to apply?)   

Please note that in line with the Subsidy Contract of the Hungary-Croatia IPA CBC Programme in Article 8 (Procurement rules)- point 2- The current Practical Guide to contract procedures for EC external actions (PraG) published on the relevant webpage of the European Commission ec.europa.eu/europeaid/prag/document.do is always prevailing.

Accordingly new version of the PraG with the new standard annexes of PraG shall be used, both LBs/PPs and both in Hungary and in Croatia.
