The Public Contract Code (PCC) regulates, on the one hand, the training procedures of the general public contracts and on the other hand, establishes the regime applicable to the generality of administrative contracts. In view of this, a contract concluded by a public entity may not be an administrative contract and, however, will not be a private law contract, but it can be public contract. In these cases, despite not being a administrative law contract, the public relevance submit it to a training procedure regulated by rules of Administrative Law, where it is classified as a public contract within the meaning and the effect that the law of the European Union uses this expression.
