Keywords: Transparency principle, Protection of business secrets, Rule of law

The aim of this study is to look at the specifics of Romania and Poland in addressing the manner in which contracting authorities implement the transparency principle in public procurement award procedures. Generally, the practical applicability of this principle arises during both the public procurement award procedures and the contract performance. Yet, disclosure rules slightly vary in both Member States. As a common feature, in practice the level of disclosure during the performance of public procurement contract seems to be quite limited in both Poland and Romania. Keywords: Transparency principle; Protection of business secrets; Rule of law.
