How can I sign up?

The State Central Purchasing System is open to the voluntary adhesion of regional governments and local authorities, as well as of regional and public bodies dependent thereon. Companies, foundations and other public sector bodies and entities may also sign up (Article 229.3 of the Public Sector Contracts Act).

Order HAP/2834/2015, of 28 December, amending Order EHA/1049/2008, of 10 April, on the declaration of goods and services subject to central purchasing implements the procedure to sign up for State Central Purchasing under the following terms and conditions:

  • In phase one, the regional government, local authority, regional or public body dependent thereon or, as the case may be, other State public sector entities not included under the obligatory scope of application, pursuant to Article 229.2 of the Public Sector Contracts Act, approved by Royal Legislative Decree 3/2011, of 14 November, will enter a generic adhesion agreement with the Directorate-General for Rationalisation and Central Purchasing to General State Purchasing.

    The formalisation of this generic adhesion agreement will imply the formal declaration of its intention to form part of the general functioning regime of the State Central Purchasing body and the right to sign up to the different framework agreements of the State Central Purchasing body

  • In phase two, the entity will formalise voluntary adhesion to a specific framework agreement that will involve the obligation of the entity or body that has signed up to perform all purchases through the same except when the goods awarded or the regime for the provision of the services do not meet the essential characteristics to satisfy the specific needs of the body or entity that has individually signed up thereto. This circumstance will require the provision of quarterly information to the Directorate-General for Rationalisation and Central Purchasing.

    The Directorate-General for Rationalisation and Central Purchasing is obliged to facilitate access to the IT application CONECTA-CENTRALIZACIÓN to all those entities and bodies that voluntarily sign up to a specific framework agreement.

    The entities that sign up are under an obligation to complete the proposed award by the internal control body of the economic and financial management of the entities subject to control. Furthermore, they are entitled to receive individualised information on the framework agreements to be held for the purpose of applying for specific adhesion thereto.

    The validity period of the specific adhesion agreement will be equivalent to the reference framework agreement.

    Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event that the framework agreements processed prior to the entry in force, on 18 April 2016, of Directive 2014/24/EU, of the European Parliament and of the Council, on public procurement, the specific agreement may be terminated by an application to the Directorate-General for Rationalisation and Central Purchasing.

The application forms for generic and specific adhesion, approved by the Directorate-General for Rationalisation and Central Purchasing, are as follows:
