The main (invariable) conditions of public procurement for the entire existence of the independent legal system of Ukraine have been proposed. The generalized concept of the procurement contract has been inferred. A critical analysis of the procurement contract has been made from the viewpoint of understanding and essential terms of the general civil contract.
