The new rules for EU Public Procurement will be adopted in autumn this year, introducing a number of substantial modifications that the contracting authorities and bidding companies need to be aware of: The European Commission aims to strengthen the Competitive Dialogue as procedure to achieve a better value for money and more flexibility. However, the practical implementation and experiences with this procedure varies significantly between Member States. Furthermore, the new rules will give contracting authorities more room to make strategic choices, emphasizing environmental and social aspects in the procurement procedure. A huge challenge remains the handling of remedies and the implementation on national level above and below EU thresholds as well as the enforcement of Public Procurement rules and the award of damages in national courts.
The intensive workshop will give participants a profound insight into current and forthcoming legal requirements of the new Public Procurement package and their practical implementation on national level. Following the approach from practitioners for practitioners, this forum provides an interactive exchange on the most crucial questions and challenges of Public Procurement law among experts. As the number of participants is limited, there will be sufficient room for in-depth discussion, expert guidance, case studies and your individual questions. All speakers will in principle stay along for an entire day, so that they will also be available for taking questions outside the slots assigned to them.
