Qualification featured prominently in numerous public procurement disputes in the EU as it is of crucial importance to the outcome of EU tender procedures. This volume supplements the previous volume in the Series on the award phase.
The book also considers the implications of the new Public Sector Directive 2014/24/EU with regard to the qualification phase, and provides an analysis of the implementation of the new Directive in a range of Member States.
The publication is unique as it is based on a comparative approach covering diversified national approaches to EU public procurement law. It provides the reader with an insight that cannot be found elsewhere and includes specific chapters on the state of law and practice in France, Germany, the United Kingdom, Spain, Italy, Portugal and Romania. In addition, it contains a number of comparative chapters on specific issues of particular theoretical and practical interest. The book can be a valuable tool in the development of public procurement regulation and practice in the EU and her Member States, and is also of a wider interest to practitioners, national law makers, com-plaints boards, national courts, the European Commission, the Court of Justice, and academia.
The Series is written by a cross-border research group consisting of academics from 10 Member States, and several of its members are considered leading researchers in the field of public procurement law at an international level.
