Law & Taxes

Public Procurement laws are being continuously revised both in structure and content. It is essential to have a comprehensive understanding of the latest directives on this subject in order to make legally sound and effective tenders and to avoid review proceedings.

Secure in all legal questions

National regulations have to be followed just as well as those of the EU in areas such as ways of procedure, specification of services, threshold values, eligibility and acceptance criteria and proper assessment of tenders. Learn more about European and national law and how to apply them successfully in your work.

Extend your expertise by participating in the various events held by the European Academy for Taxes, Economics & Law in this area. See our range of training opportunities in Public procurement here.

EU-funded projects put high demands on project leaders and coordinators. Especially the correct financial accounting of the project constitutes a great challenge. Beneficiaries have to follow strict and complex rules set up by the European Commission.

Whether internal or external, strategic, financial, operational or reputational risks – these can significantly hinder the work of your authority. In the current economic and financial context the lack of an adequate approach to risk management is an enormous and real threat to the work of any public administration, since nowadays work efficiency and effectiveness in the public sector are more important than ever before. For that reason, it is of extreme importance that public authorities do not rely solely on their intuition in dealing with risks, but use professional formalised risk management as an integral and ongoing part of their general management process.

In early 2014, a comprehensive reform of EU public procurement law will be adopted. The current directives 2004/18/EC on procurement in public works, supply and service contracts, as well as 2004/17/EC on procurement in the water, energy, transport and postal services sectors will be updated. Additionally, the new proposed directive 2011/0437 on the award of concession contracts will give an orientation previously only provided by CJEU case law.

The European Union provides various funds and instruments to support stakeholders such as universities, research centres and companies in the fields of research and development and the commercialisation of research results. However, financial accounting and reporting of EU-funded projects are considered very time consuming and complex.

R&D projects and cooperation, whether with or without European or national funding, need a safe and sound legal contract design. In most cases, the legal framework decides about the success of a project and lays the foundation for a smooth pursuit of research activities.

Advanced hands-on experience, operative know-how and thorough knowledge of procedures and risks are necessary to ensure clear, effective and reliable procurement procedures. While the new EU procurement directives require more flexibility, transparency and fulfilment of high qualitative, environmental, social and innovation standards, many contracting authorities still favour lowest price criterion as the safest and fastest procedure. Yet, many examples prove that the lowest price does not always mean lowest costs and therefore needs to be extended by additional criteria.
