Event Description

Target group
This Master Class is aimed at policy makers, public officials from national and sub-national administrations and contracting authorities (and their professional advisers) in EU Member States, candidate countries and beyond, from European institutions and organisations and from international organisations based in the EU.

Description
Negotiated procedures have been available as award procedures in defined exceptional circumstances for many years. Competitive dialogue was created as a special procedure by the 2004 Public Procurement Directives to provide a more flexible solution for public authorities wanting to award particularly complex contracts.
But there are many practical questions about the effective implementation of these procedures e.g. Is competitive dialogue a better procurement route than the restricted procedure or the negotiated procedure with prior publication? What does the public sector need to do to plan the effective use of these procedures? How can the public sector best use the flexibility which the procedures provide?
Not all methods of using negotiated procedures and competitive dialogue have so far been equally effective in promoting value for money for the public sector and objective advice on when and how to use these procedures is hard to find.
This Master Class will give you the opportunity to get advice on your specific issues from our experts and to share the experience of others in the public sector.

Learning methodology
Presentations and exchange of experiences. Participant numbers are limited to maximum 18 to facilitate discussion and maximise learning benefits.

Objectives
Master Classes are intended for public officials and their professional advisers with a good understanding of public procurement issues aiming to improve knowledge/skills in negotiated procedures and competitive dialogue and to discuss practical issues relevant to procurements in progress/about to be launched.
