This detailed Commentary provides an authoritative interpretation of each provision in the main EU Directive on public procurement – Directive 2014/24/EU, and is rich in its critical analysis of the provisions of the 2014 Directive and the case-law. The Commentary also highlights the application problems and interpretative issues being raised in EU Member States, which in due time will make their way up to the CJEU or even require further legislative interventions.

Key features include:

• Updated to include the most significant CJEU case law as of end-2020

• Analysis that is informed by the practical issues arising across the EU Member States, as well as in the UK

• Written by a diverse pool of specialists in each of the aspects of the Directive upon which they comment, with the Commentary underpinned by their collective knowledge of public procurement law in the old 28 EU Member States.

Providing a practice-oriented analysis that allows for a problem solving approach, European Public Procurement will be particularly relevant to practising lawyers including within the civil services in all EU jurisdictions and the UK. The depth of analysis offered in the Commentary will also be of great benefit to academics and postgraduate students with an interest in public procurement and, more generally, public law, administrative law and public administration.
Critical Acclaim
‘The editors are leaders in the field of public procurement law and have assembled an unrivalled set of authors from across Europe to provide an authoritative commentary of the crucial mother of all procurement regulation – Public Sector Procurement Directive 2014/24/EU. Here you will quickly find all there is to know about the Directive’s Articles 1 to 94. There are hardly any alternatives to this useful work and this commentary might well achieve the same importance for Directive 2014/24/EU as the Palandt has for German civil law. Procurement lawyers might come to say: quod non est in Caranta/Sanchez-Graells., non est in mundo.’
– Martin Trybus, University of Birmingham, UK and Member of the Procurement Review Board of the European Space Agency, France

‘This Commentary is one of the most valuable additions to the public procurement literature for years. It combines the advantages of a legal commentary of the continental European tradition (comprehensiveness, structure, depth, etc.) with comparative perspectives, cutting-edge research, and the necessary contextualization, to understand the interactions between the Directive and the complex national systems of administrative and public law. The outstanding editors as well as the 36 contributors from 18 European countries deserve much praise for this important book!’
– Martin Burgi, Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich, Germany
