Public procurement preference margin

Turkey's public procurement legislation allows for a 15% price preference in favor of domestic suppliers when participating in tenders as well as for set asides for Turkish goods and suppliers. A Prime Minister circular of December 2008 encouraged Turkish contracting authorities to apply more rigorously those provisions.
 
The procedure was used in a total of 1285 tenders in 2008, a volume which constitutes about 10% of all tenders and 14.8% of tenders open to foreign bid (12.6% and 20.17% respectively in 2007). In 2008, about 68.2% of all tenders were open to foreign bid. Following the above Decree, a big increase is observed in the first quarter of 2009 for using the 15% price advantage. The procedure is used in 336 tenders with a volume EUR1 billion whereas the numbers were EUR47 million and EUR188 million respectively in the same quarter in 2008.
