Public procurement preference margin

On 14 June 2012, the government of Argentina introduced a preference margin for exporters into its public procurment law (Decree 1023/2001). Via Decree 892/2012, companies which apply for a public tender and also export part of their produce shall:

  • receive a premium of 7 percent on a public contract for which the exporter's bid was equal or below the best offer of a non-exporting firm;
  • receive the opportunity to match the best offer made by a bidder that does not export as long as that bid is within 7 percent of the exporter's submission.

 
The Decree further awards the Office of the Chief of Cabinet the power to specify concrete eligibility criteria for this preferential treatment.
