Public Procurement and Cloud Service Providers in France

The French public procurement system is a complex administrative and political structure, with several levels of contracting and oversight. Despite one central set of rules, responsibility for procurement is dispersed among local authorities, forming a significant barrier to standardisation. In addition, France has the highest number of procurement proceedings per year within the EU.

The government of Emmanuel Macron has embarked on major digital transformation programme: full digitalisation of public proceedings within five years and a massive reduction in the cost of running the state. To achieve this, cloud procurement is essential. However, France’s fragmented  and data localisation requirements remain major barriers to cloud adoption.
