European Public Procurement Law is the ultimate legal resource on public procurement law in the European Union. It combines the full text of the new Public Sector Procurement Directive 2014/24/EU with 141 relevant judgments rendered by the Court of Justice of the European Union during the period 1982–2014.
Constant De Koninck, Thierry Ronse and William Timmermans provide expert commentary on the impact of the Public Sector Procurement Directive 2014/24/EU and analysis of the case law. An insightful overview of the key changes introduced by the Directive is also included.
This new edition connects the reader with the relevant CJEU case law, which has been instrumental in interpreting the public procurement legal framework. It is of great value for legal practitioners and has a clear practical use for officials who have to ensure that contracts are awarded in an open, fair and transparent manner, allowing domestic and non-domestic firms to compete for business on an equal basis, all this within the EU legal framework and in compliance with the new Public Sector Procurement Directive 2014/24/EU.
