Synopsis This master thesis is developed around the conditions of engagement of SME’ s in public procurement procedures. Starting from the importance of these companies to the consolidation of the common market and the efficiency of public procurement, we direct our concerns to the improvement of the active involvement of SME’s in the public procurement market. Our research aimed to identify the regulatory framework, diagnose the typical barriers to SME participation and recognize the contributions to improve access to public procurement. In a final phase, we try to formulate solutions to improve SME participation in public procurement.
