I had a quick look and also couldn't find anything. There was the news
in December that the
EC postponed its guideline on ICT standardisation and procurement:

But even if this guidline was in place, it only suggests that "open
source may be considered" as far as I coud see by skimming through it.

Speaking of procurement, there is also the "Guideline on public
procurement of Open
Source Software":

Hope this helps.
