Winter Master Class – Probity and Public Procurement with Prof. Christopher Bovis

The Master Class is a high-level event for officials and professionals who have a good knowledge of Public Procurement or are working on projects that may involve 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, provide improvement for your procurement measures in order to achieve the best value for money and identify best practices.

The participants are welcome to submit a summary of the problem or case they want to present for discussion and advice in advance. Information concerning such problems and cases shall be treated confidentially.

  1. 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 the implications for Public Procurement policies.

  1. Problem Solving

The second day is devoted to cases and questions submitted by participants. Public Procurement measures, problems and other issues from the daily practice of participants are discussed and difficulties resolved. Participants receive advice on how to improve their Public Procurement measures and ensure their compatibility with the internal market.

  1. Best Practices

On both days, the innovative 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.


  • The sessions will combine presentations, case studies and discussion on practical problems. You will have ample opportunities to present your own problematic issues and discuss them with the speakers and participants from other countries.
  • Just send to us your cases and questions in advance! We will forward them to our speakers, who will include your issues in the programme and answer them during the workshop. All information concerning such problems and cases will be treated confidentially.
