public matters newsletter - November 2014

20 November 2014

In this month's edition, Angelica Gavin starts us off with a look at procurement challenges in light of the recent case of Group M UK Ltd v Cabinet Office in which an unsuccessful bidder brought an application for specific disclosure against the Cabinet Office; Lynne Rathbone considers governance issues for local authorities in light of the best value inspection of London Borough of Tower Hamlets; and Nichola Evans examines the courts approach to costs management following the introduction of the new regime last year (and provides a link to her very useful costs budget guide). Sharon Jones takes a special look at the progress of the Commissions state aid modernisation programme, and Angelica then rounds things off with an insightful summary of the EU Treaty Principles and their application to regulated procurements.
