Initiative language

Service providers for the city of Barcelona will continue to be paid even if the execution of their services is suspended. Under the current state of emergency, those contracts remain valid.

The Mayoral decree on disruptions to municipal public procurement, approved when the national state of emergency was declared, ensures the continuity of public contracts, the liquidity of providers, particularly SMEs, and strives to maintain jobs.
