Master Class: Public Procurement for Utilities and Concessions Contracts

Master Class: Public Procurement for Utilities and Concessions Contracts - Pictures Events 20235

State-owned and commercial entities, operating in the utilities sector, such as gas, electric transport, and water firms, are obliged to apply the EU procurement policy when they purchase goods, services and works to pursue an activity in one of these sectors.
The rules adopted with the Concessions Directive allow public policy makers to use public contracts and concessions more effectively, modernise the public sector and contribute to a more equitable and sustainable model of growth.During this Masterclass you will learn how to choose the right procurement regime for your tender, how to handle crossborder procurement, learn about the procurement procedure for affiliated undertakings and utilities, you will be updated on the award procedures in utilities procurement and learn about concessions in the utilities sector. In the end, we will have a problem solving session where you will have the opportunity to bring in your own cases and questions and discuss these with our renowned experts.

Participants receive a certificate upon participation.

Starting from € 2.110,- (excl. VAT)

Methodology

A Master Class is a high-level event for professionals and officials involved in Public Procurement. The purpose of the Master Class is to review important developments in Public Procurement case law and the decisional practice of the European Commission, assess their implications for the Member States and public authorities and to solve your problems in Public Procurement cases. Participants are encouraged to submit a summary of the problem or case they want to present for discussion in advance. This information will of course be treated confidentially.

The sessions will combine presentations, case studies and discussion on practical issues. You will have ample opportunities to present your own issues and discuss them with speakers and participants from other countries.

Review and Assessment

On the first day, you receive an expert review of the latest Court rulings and Commission decisions. Seminal judgments and decisions are analysed in depth. The analysis identifies how principles are applied in specific situations, delineates possible exceptions and draws out the implications for Public Procurement policies.

Problem Solving

The second day is devoted to cases and questions submitted by participants. Public Procurement problems and other issues from the daily practice of participants are discussed and difficulties resolved.

Best Practices

On both days, the format of this advanced small-scale Master Class enables you to consider wider issues of relevance to officials and practitioners involved in Public Procurement. You can exchange information and experience with professionals from other countries.

Master Class materials are available for download after the event.
