Compliance and Regulatory

Government Agreements

Government agreements are subject to a specific set of rules, which is complex and specialized. Cyprus government and other public or local authorities’ agreements with third-party contractors are regulated by domestic legislation which implements the corresponding EU framework. Public procurement and other laws regulating the conclusion of government agreements must be observed with caution and attention to all regulatory demands involved.

Consistent with the public nature of these agreements and the high degree of governmental scrutiny and supervision on the allocation of services to private contractors, the relevant framework imposes specific and stringent requirements, which often extend beyond the typical commercial requirements and considerations. Observing these requirements presupposes deep legal knowledge of the domestic and EU laws and regulations, and extensive experience with the specific processes and procedures underpinning the procurement, tender stage/competition with other applicants, and the conclusion of said government agreements.
