  • Public Procurement, Public Private Partnerships and State Aid Rules: A
           Symbiotic Relationship
    • Abstract: In January 2014, the European Parliament has approved the new legislative package on Public
      Procurement. The new regime is expected to be more accessible for SMEs, less complex
      andmore flexible. The increased flexibility which gives rise to greater discretion to Contracting
      Authorities, specifically in the light of the new competitive negotiated procedure, may
      however create a greater risk of favouritism. However, when public authorities purchase supplies,
      services or

  • Public Investments through Public Corporations: ESA95-ESA10 Pitfalls
    • Abstract: Over the past decades, most EU Member States have established quite a lot of public corporations
      and special purpose vehicles (SPV) to realise public investments and PPP projects.
      One of the aims is to set up a situation whereby the financial operation can be kept off the
      balance sheet of the government. In this article, we focus on the question how this can be realized
      or not in the light of ESA95 and how Eurostat is dealing with these kind of operations

  • Private Enforcement of Contract Ineffectiveness: A Practitioner’s
           Point of View
    • Abstract: This paper aims to provide a practitioner’s perspective on the enforcement of the remedy of
      “ineffectiveness” in EU procurement law. Needless to say, while the EU procurement Directives
      aim to establish harmonised rules throughout the EU, the application of these rules
      and the enforcement of remedies vary between the Member States, due to differences in the
      legal systems. This paper aims to provide a snapshot of the situation in the EU based on the

  • Quality as an Interacting Award Criterion under Current and Future EU-Law
    • Abstract: This article addresses the question of how to define what may be understood under quality
      as award criterion, which legal constraints have to be respected and what public entities
      have to considerwhen implementing such “requirements” in the formof quality-related award
      criteria in procurement practice. It will therefore examine the legal framework as provided
      by the current Directive 2004/18/EC on the coordination of procedures for the award of public

  • The Strategic Use of Public Procurement in Support of Innovation

      2020 strategy for a smart, sustainable and inclusive growth. Public authorities should make
      the best strategic use of public procurement to suport innovation. Buying innovative products,
      works and services plays a key role in improving the efficiency and quality of public
      services while addressing major societal challenges. It contributes to achieving best value

  • Highlight of the EU Procurement Reforms: The New Directive on Co
    • Abstract: Dear reader,
      As you are aware, I am sure, the new EU legislative framework on public procurement and
      concessions has now been enacted. The highlights of the reforms are considered essential
      levers for the EU 2020 Growth Strategy, and they certainly are to a great extent. I would
      like to emphasize here the significance of the adoption of a new Directive on concessions.

  • Contract Execution in Europe: Different Legal Models with a Common Core
    • Abstract: The comparative analysis of public procurement shows that in most European countries, the
      public contractor is endowed with special powers in the execution of the contract. This result,
      while demonstrating the utility of comparative studies on public procurement, leads to
      criticize classifications of public contracts along the divide between private and public legal
      regimes, which should be abandoned in favour of a different criterion founded on the
      “legal location”

      namely participation, decency, transparency, accountability, fairness and efficiency
      are put into perspective and their applicability and potential impact during the ex post phase

    • Abstract: The problems of incorrect contract execution are widespread in any procurement system.
      Often the quality promised in the contract signed after the award procedure is not delivered
      during the execution phase and the procuring entities accept a different and worse-thanpromised
      performance. The infringement of the contract can lead to a material amendment
      related to a modification of the economic balance of the initial contract. Such situation can
      be due to the incompete

      reached on new directives on public procurement and utilities procurement, and, with
      particular significance for PPP, also on the new Directive on the award of Concession Contracts.

      60% of PPP can be classified as concession contracts.
