Cost of Non-Europe Reports identify the possibilities for economic or other gains and/or the realisation of a ‘public good’ through common action at EU level in specific policy areas and sectors. This Cost of Non-Europe Report seeks to analyse the costs for citizens, businesses and relevant stake-holders of remaining gaps and barriers in the European Single Market, building on and updating the 1988 Cecchini Report, which quantified its potential benefits.

Part IV – Public Procurement and Concessions
One of the key benefits of the Single Market was expected to arise in the context of public procurement. This particular study – the fourth in a series – updates the analysis presented in the Cecchini Report, estimates the value of savings to the public purse that have been achieved to date through European legislation on public procurement, and discusses the extent to which future savings might be achieved (in particular following approval of the proposals for new public procurement directives in January 2014).
