OUR SERVICES

PUBLIC PROCUREMENT

With ZJN-3, the new EU public procurement Directive 2014/24/EU and Directive 2014/25/EU were transposed into the Slovenian legislative system, which was an important novelty of ZJN-3. Namely, ZJN-3 simultaneously and jointly introduced both directives into the Slovenian legal system.
