Procurement law has become a key area of professional practice in the United Kingdom as authorities and utilities are held to account to a complex web of legislative rules, judicial principles and 'soft law'. The contributors, members of Monckton Chambers, have extensive day-to-day experience in this field dealing both with the operation of the procurement process and the regulatory and judicial routes for challenging procurement procedures. The book covers the current state of law and practice in the field of procurement law. Particular focus is placed on the procedural content of procurement law challenges and separate focus is given to the position in Scotland and Northern Ireland where local law issues often shape the impact of procurement law. Previous books have taken the legislation as their starting point but in this book the authors demonstrate that an approach to procurement law may be taken in which the key obligations are those imposed by general principles. The real enforcement challenge involves establishing clear rules based on these principles, often in the context of intense judicial scrutiny, in which the procedural demands of the procurement and the courts shape the law.

This book contains an analysis of the EU procurement directives for the Public Sector and for the Utilities Sectors. The analyses are primarily based on judgments of the Court of Justice of the EU and Danish case law. The rules of the procurement directives are directly applicable to Danish law and the several hundred Danish cases on the procurement directives largely amplify the analyses of the individual rules of the procurement directives. With this in mind, the authors have found it relevant to translate the book into English in order to present the analyses and the Danish case law available to a broader audience.

Now also available as eBook Directive 2004/17/EC governs the rules, provisions, and procedures entailed in public procurement contracts awarded by EU Member States in the water, energy, transport, and postal services sectors. In the course of the eight-year (1996and–2004) gestation period of an EC public procurement policy that would meet the challenges of a globalised economy, it became clear that these utilities required a legislative framework distinct from the general coordination of award procedures that finally emerged as Directive 2004/18/EC. This book on the and‘Utilitiesand’ Directive 2004/17/EC is a companion to an earlier volume on the legislative history of Directive 2004/18/EC. This new volume gathers in one place all the relevant documents that led to the adoption of the Utilities Directive. In great detail this legislative history reveals such crucial elements and outcomes as the following: ports and airports as transport hubs of solid fuels; treatment of relevant WTO Agreements; confidentiality and security; works and service concessions; resale and leasing provisions; competition; communication of technical specifications; tax. environmental, and labour obligations; time limits; and design contests. Introducing the book are excerpts that give a general picture of the reasons that led to the intention to replace the earlier procurement directive for the utilities sectors (93/38/EEC). Then follow excerpts that give an insight into the drafting of the recitals in the Preamble, the articles, and the annexes. The book concludes with a chronological overview of the legislative documents associated with Directive 2004/17/EC and a Keyword Index. Along with its companion volume on Directive 2004/18/EC, this important book will be a powerful resource for lawyers and policymakers engaged in the practice and development of European procurement law. It will also provide both practitioners and researchers working in the area of European procurement law with an incomparable desktop reference on the Utilities Directive.

Public procurement represents more than 15 per cent of European GDP and is one of the fastest growing sectors of the European economy. Public procurement law is also developing rapidly, not least in the area of remedies for breach of procurement rules. The aim of this book is to analyse the remedy of damages in public procurement law. The European Directive of 11 December 2007 amending Council Directives 89/665/EEC and 92/13/EEC has reaffirmed the importance of damages as a tool to enforce the proper award of public contracts, but has left the exact architecture of the damages remedy in the hands of the Member States. This book offers an overview of damages liability which is inclusive, coherent and practical, covering the relevant law and jurisprudence from a number of countries across Europe and further afield. The contributors are high-profile and authoritative commentators on public procurement law, including policy-makers, judges, academics and practitioners.

First, several chapters discuss the regime of the Public Sector Procurement Directive 2004/18/EC governing the procurement activities of the EU Member States, the coverage of the Directive, qualification and technical specifications, procurement procedures, and award criteria. A specific chapter describes the EU principles applicable to contracts not covered or partially covered by the Directive, which have been the subject of relevant developments in the case law of the European Court of Justice. Another chapter covers sustainable procurement. Second, three chapters are devoted to special procurement regimes, namely public private partnerships, defence and utilities. Third, the review and remedies regime for public procurement is covered in two chapter. Fourth, one chapters goes beyond public procurement and looks at the effect of EU law on the contract management of public contracts, after their conclusion. Fifth, three chapters go beyond the regulation of the Member States and look at the EU law regime applicable to contracts of the EU institutions. Sixth and finally, a concluding chapter provides a critique of the EU legal framework by an author from outside the EU.
