The paper concerns the functioning of the juridical instruments of public procurement control in Poland. Their proper operation can help to minimize the risk of irregularities in the public procurement. The shortcomings of their functioning will be addressed. Attention will be also paid to improper regulations that should be changed by the Polish legislature and regulations of the European Union in this matter. Among others, administrative preventive measures in the field of public contracts will be presented, falling clearly within the legal forms of public administration’s functioning, understood as a certain type of specific activities used by the government to deal with specific issue. The conclusions and proposals presented in the paper may contribute to the effective functioning of the public procurement market in Poland.
