This chapter discusses Turkey’s public procurement regime. Turkey is not a member of the WTO Agreement on Government Procurement (GPA) but is an EU accession candidate country, and as such will be required to have a procurement regime that conforms to EU norms and regulations. It is unclear if and when Turkey will accede to the EU, however, and as discussed in this chapter the extent of convergence to the EU Acquis has been limited in a number of important areas. The chapter begins with a summary of the main characteristics of the Turkish public procurement system, followed by an economic assessment of Turkey’s government procurement practices. The chapter then analyzes how successful the Turkish public procurement regime has been in achieving value for money goals and reducing discrimination against foreign bidders.

Keywords:   Turkey’s public procurement regime, assessment of public procurement practices, value for money, reducing discrimination against foreign bidders, WTO
