NanoGUNE, as a contracting authority, must observe strict compliance with the Law 9/2017, of November 8, on Public Sector Contracts in the management of purchases.

Based on the expenditure limits regulated by the Law 9/2017, nanoGUNE differentiates between “Direct Purchases” (contrato menor), which are those where the expenditure is less than €15,000 (excluding VAT), and “Non-direct Purchases”, which involve an expenditure greater than or equal to €15,000 (excluding VAT).

The Law 6/2018, of July 3, on General State Budgets for the year 2018 introduced a modification in the procurement law raising the limit for purchases (“contrato menor”) from 15,000 euros to 50,000 euros (per supplier, per year) provided they are not intended for general services and infrastructure.

The Finance Director must be contacted for any question related to purchases.
