Public procurement

European Public Procurement, PPP/Private Finance and Concessions

This course will provide an understanding of the latest rules and developments in European public procurement, PPP/private finance and concessions. It should be of benefit to representatives from contracting authorities and businesses who need to familiarise themselves with the rules and policies at European level.

About this course

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.

We will also analyse the specific requirements when working with European Funds.

This course is part of the programme for obtaining EIPA’s European Certification for public procurement professionals. See more information here.

Course methodology/highlights:

The course includes case analysis, debates, and exercises, with plenty of interactive sessions. Participants would benefit from reading the Directives covered in the programme prior to the course.

You will be given the slides as well as additional learning material and online resources to help you apply your new knowledge and skills to your work.
