Event Description

Course description

This comprehensive online 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 and the Utilities Directive 2014/25/EU. During the seminar you will receive insights into the application of professional procurement practices.

The four-day programme will begin with an ‘Introductory Seminar: European Public Procurement for Newcomers to Procurement’, which will be held on 8 March 2022. The three-day ‘Practitioners’ Seminar: European Public Procurement Rules, Policy and Practice’ will commence on the following day.

If you are confident of all the basics, and do not feel that you need any further training on it, you can also register for the Practitioners’ Seminar only.

What will you learn:

After the four-day seminar you should have:

  • a good understanding of the European rules and principles on public procurement, including case law
  • awareness of the various phases in the procurement cycle and its practical implications
  • insights into professional procurement practices

Course methodology/highlights:

This introductory and advanced course includes exercises and cases. Participants would benefit from reading Directive 2014/24/EU in advance prior to the course.

How will it help you?

After taking this course, you can join EIPA’s dedicated community of practice together with other, former participants. You will also have access to the course materials for a duration of three months after the course.

This seminar is intended for officials from national, sub-national and local authorities and other public bodies from the EU Member States, candidate countries and European bodies and organisations, who wish to familiarise themselves with European public procurement rules, policy and practice, as well as for other interested persons working in this field, for example representatives from industry and academia.
