INTRODUCTION TO THE EUROPEAN SINGLE PROCUREMENT DOCUMENT
The ESPD is a declaration on honor enabling companies to attest to their competence, their financial situation as well as their capacities when they bid for a public procurement within a European Union state. It is used as preliminary evidence in the administrative offer for public procurements.
The purpose of the ESPD is to simplify the processes of providing documents and certificates attesting to a company’s eligibility for a public procurement (exclusion and selection criteria). In France, the purpose of this document is, among other things, to supersede the DC1 and DC2 forms as well as the “Marché Public Simplifié” (“Simplified Public Procurement”) program.
