This course will provide you with an update on the legal issues in European public procurement. Legal experts and practitioners will explain in an accessible manner the recent legal developments and recent case law in the field of European public procurement.
The first part of the course will concentrate on recent developments in public procurement at European level and the second part will be devoted to recent case law.
You will receive an insight into the recent jurisprudence of the General Court. This case law relates to challenges to contract awards by the EU institutions/agencies/bodies and is based on procurement under the Financial Regulation. Special attention will be given to the recent case law of the Court of Justice of the EU (CJEU) in the field of procurement. In addition, the essence of the remedies directives and the related case law will be presented and interpreted for you.
This course is part of the programme for obtaining the EIPA’s European Certification for public procurement professionals. See more information here.

- the current legal developments in procurement at European level

Nothing was missing apart from being in a lovely Maastricht
All the presentations were very good. The trainers know their subject very well and gave very completed presentations on very actual aspects. Even in 1,5 days they were all to cover the essential part of the presentations. Excellent!
Excellent course! I highly recommend it!
