Along the way, Algeria has passed a constraint opening under the pressure of international institutions seeking for a master of this opening, which did not miss to even touch the public procurement law. This influence is now fully assumed by the drafters of the new regulations on public procurement whose preamble explicitly states that: « The reviewing of the public procurement regulations essentially meets the requirement to be inspired by international standards as well as the recommendations of international institutions » Everything suggests that by referring to the international standards in the statement of reasons to the new regulations on public procurement, the Algerian legislator is mainly, if not exclusively, targeting the UNCITRAL model law on public procurement, especially more than Algeria was elected member of this Commission for four terms spanning three distinct periods: (1983-1989), (1995-2001) and (2004-2016).
