The government procurement market in Brazil is large and thus—regardless of the state’s continuous refusal to enter in international bilateral and multilateral agreements concerning the subject—it cannot be easily ignored by the international community. Following a description of the general features of the Brazilian public procurement regulation, the chapter addresses the current status and future perspectives for its internationalization in order to enable conclusions on the following issues: (1) the level of market access given to foreign bidders; (2) the applicability of international government procurement rules and practices; (3) submission to international conventions and agreements on government procurement; and (4) the level of harmonization between Brazilian domestic government procurement laws and international models. In view of such issues, special consideration is given to the effects of the current level of internationalization of Brazilian public procurement, especially those regarding offset agreements.
