In order to provide contracting authorities with more flexibility and opportunities to make choices, as well as to reduce their administrative burden and promote the innovative solutions, the Directive 2014/24/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council on public procurement, which repealed the Directive 2004/18/EC, was adopted on 26 February 2014. The Directive 2014/24/EU is basically intended only for contracting authorities of Member States and imposing the requirement of transparency for their actions as well as emphasising the equal assessment of suppliers, who submit the tenders, and the requirement of non-discrimination.

The Directive 2014/24/EU must be transposed into national law of each Member State by 18 April 2016 and it imposes more than one relevant rule with its possible exception for the public procurement procedures. Therefore this article discusses the main amendments of the Public Procurement Law of the Republic of Lithuania related to the implementation of the directive.
