Answer to Written Question: Outsourcing of emergency medical services and possible breaches of European public procurement rules
(Source: European Parliament)
Answer given by Mr Breton
on behalf of the European Commission
The Commission does not have information about the public procurement contracts for health services mentioned by the Honourable Members.
Without prejudice to the powers of the Commission as guardian of the Treaties, it is primarily for the competent administrative and judicial authorities of the Member States to ensure that all the contracts awarded by their contracting authorities and entities, including in the health sector, comply with EU law.
