ABSTRACT:

The use of calculation Life Cycle Cost (LCC) as a tool for the evaluation of tenders is a novel concept at EU policy level. This way of computing the costs has been introduced for the first time with the current European Public Procurement Directives, which must in turn be transposed into Spanish legislation in the coming months. This paper presents the new situation regarding CCV generated by these directives, and to the construction sector and the particular road; further notes methodologies and highlights existing tools and, finally, sets out the circumstances to address the authorities to undertake successfully proposed by these directives towards a more accurate and comprehensive evaluation of the bids challenge, beyond its purchase price, and that will encourage consideration of their environmental impact in terms of cost, throughout their entire life cycle.
