New Provisional Measure brings complementary rules to public purchases in the context of the coronavirus pandemic06/07/2020
Por: Marianne Albers
Published in the Official Gazette (DOU), Provisional Measure nº 951 allows the use of the purchase registration system for contracts or purchases destined to tackle the current public health emergency. In the event a State or Municipality does not possess its own purchase registration service, it may use the federal registry.
