Procurement Policies and Rules and Related Bank Policies

The EBRD's Procurement Policies and Rules (PP&R) are based on the fundamental principles of non-discrimination, fairness and transparency. They are designed to promote efficiency and effectiveness and to minimise risk in the implementation of the Bank's lending and investment operations.

The 2017 version of the EBRD Procurement Policies and Rules was approved by the Board of Directors on 1 November 2017. The policy is effective for projects that are passing the Concept Clearance stage at the Bank’s Operational Committee  (or delegated authority) after 1 November 2017 as well as for projects where there is a written agreement between the client and the Bank to apply this new version of the policy.

For grant funded consultancy where the Bank’s client is the contracting party the new policy will apply to all selection processes that are initiated after the 1st November 2017.

EBRD Financing of Private Parties to Concessions

On 1 May 2001, the Bank’s Board of Directors discussed and approved a paper clarifying the Bank’s approach to concession financing and elaborating on the issues involved when the Bank considers financing transactions involving concession or similar contracts awarded to private parties. These issues concern both the process by which the Concession has been awarded as well as the fairness and reasonableness of the Contract terms and conditions. The Concession Policy was revised in 2015 and approved by the Board on 11 November 2015. The revised policy will apply to all concessions reviewed by the Bank after this date.
