Research Handbook on EU Public Procurement Law

Edited by Christopher H. Bovis, FRSA Professor of International Business Law, Faculty of Business Law and Politics, University of Hull, UK
The Research Handbook on EU Public Procurement Law makes a major contribution to our understanding of the EU public procurement regime, at a time when it is being implemented by the EU Member States, and of the pivotal role that this will play for the delivery of the European 2020 Growth Strategy. The internal market relies on a simplified regime in the European Union, which will result from procedural efficiencies and from streamlining the application of the substantive rules. The Research Handbook has comprehensive thematic coverage which includes: public procurement regulation, strategic procurement, justiciability in public procurement, public procurement and competition and public procurement and public service.

Public procurement law is a necessary component of the single market because it attempts to regulate the public markets of Member States and represents a key priority for the European Union. This Research Handbook makes a major contribution to the understanding of the current EU public procurement regime, its interface with the law of the internal market and the pivotal role that this will play in the delivery of the European 2020 Growth Strategy.

Led by Christopher Bovis, a team of internationally acclaimed expert contributors provide comprehensive analysis of the law, jurisprudence and regulation of public procurement in the EU. Coverage is organised into five thematic parts exploring public procurement regulation; strategic procurement; justiciability in public procurement; public procurement and competition; and public procurement and public service.

Offering invaluable, contemporary insights, the Research Handbook on EU Public Procurement Law is both detailed and accessible, making it an indispensable resource for researchers, academics, policy makers, regulators and judges at national and international levels. Its wealth of detail and practical assessment will also appeal to current and future generations of procurement practitioners across the European Union.
‘Written by leading experts in the field of procurement, this Research Handbook is a gold mine of analysis and guidance, which will be an essential tool for everyone who wishes to deepen their understanding of procurement law: an unmissable guide, philosopher, and friend for research in the field. It is a most welcome addition to Edward Elgar's series.’
– Laurence Gormley, University of Groningen, the Netherlands
