The course will provide an up-to-date overview of the current rules and developments in European public procurement based on the public procurement directive (Directive 2014/24/EU) and the directive on the award of concession contracts (Directive 2014/23/EU). The public procurement directive will be examined in detail, covering the scope, procedures, rules on public contracts, contract performance and specific procurement regimes, and its practical development in the last years. The course will also address key issues in the use of competitive dialogue and the competitive procedure with negotiation. It will cover PPP/private finance, indicating where PPP are being used and when they work best for financing infrastructure projects.
This seminar is part of the programme for obtaining the EIPA’s European Certification for public procurement professionals. See more information here.
