Study day on public procurement

On 17 November 2016, Mr Gauthier ERVYN appeared as a speaker during the Study day on public procurement organised by the legal publisher, POLITEIA. Mr. ERVYN gave a presentation on the topic “What is the nature of the competition for public contracts not covered by the Public Procurement Act?” During this presentation, he described the legislation, theory and case law of the Court of Justice of the European Union and of the Council of State in relation to the principles of administrative law and European law, as apply to contracts awarded by public authorities and similar bodies. It is clear that such contracts are now subject to the principles of equality, transparency and non-discrimination whenever they confer exclusive economic rights on third parties.
