Abstract: This paper aims to examine the impact of the inclusion of sustainability aspects in the evaluation criteria in public tenders on the performance of small and medium-sized enterprises in the public procurement market of the Visegrad Countries. Using data on more than 30,000 contract award notices from Tenders Electronic Daily, we found a positive effect of sustainability aspects in the evaluation criteria on SMEs bidding. However, even though SMEs won more than three-quarters of all contracts in the dataset, they obtained just over half of the total financial value of all contracts.
