On 9th March, 2016, the Chamber of Deputies approved a bill amending the Public Procurement Act, which we detailed in the February 2016 Legal Update.

The Chamber-approved bill is designed mainly to repeal and replace Act No. 137/2006 Coll. on public contracts and Act No. 139/2006 Coll. on concession procedures and conces- sion contracts (The Concession Act) and to assure that public procurement law complies with new EU legislation. The Cham- ber approved the government bill subsequent to a number of motions to amend.
