Event Description

About this seminar
This comprehensive three-day seminar will provide you with an understanding of the principles and procedures of European public procurement policy, focusing on the Public Procurement Directives and relevant case law. You will be guided through the Public Procurement Directive 2014/24/EU, the Utilities Directive 2014/25/EU and the Directive 2014/23/EU on the award of concession contracts. During the seminar you will receive insights into the application of professional procurement practices.
 
Newcomers to procurement can also participate in the four-day programme that will begin with an ‘Introductory Seminar: European Public Procurement for Newcomers to Procurement’, which will start on 18 February 2020.
