public matters newsletter, October 2013

7 October 2013

In this edition, we begin to focus on the new public procurement directive which is making its way through the EU legislative machine by analysing two specific aspects of the directive. We also include articles on public private partnerships, some recent public procurement and state aid cases and some top tips for defending procurement challenges. As in previous editions we have a question and answer section - this month, Sharon Jones follows on from Steven Brunnings article last month and gives a practical insight into framework agreements.
