Italy Government Procurement

Government Procurement

Italy has made progress in making the laws and regulations governing procurement more transparent, although Italy has not yet fully updated its code, nor completely implemented EU directives on government procurement. In addition, the pressure to reduce government expenditures while increasing efficiency is resulting in increased use of competitive procurement procedures and greater emphasis on best value rather than automatic reliance on traditional suppliers. This trend is benefiting U.S. firms.

In order to attract more American firms to the Italian market, the U.S. Mission's commercial sections actively participate in the U.S. Department of Commerce's trade promotion program called "Showcase Europe." This program intends to open European markets to more U.S. firms by reducing tariff and non-tariff barriers to trade, ensuring full access to government procurement opportunities and national treatment for investors, and helping U.S. firms broaden their efforts beyond their traditional markets in Europe. Working with sister sections at Embassies and Consulates across Europe, the U.S. Mission's commercial sections use a variety of vehicles to bring Italy to the attention of U.S. firms. They plan an active program of trade events and promotional activities throughout Italy to introduce new American products and services in the Italian market.
