About EPPPL - European Procurement & Public Private Partnership Law Review

Procurement procedures and Public-Private Partnerships are two major legal and policy instruments regulating the relationship between the public and private sectors in terms of procedural and substantive issues, required for the effective and efficient delivery of public services. Since 2006 the European Procurement and Public Private Partnership Law Review (EPPPL) has been committed to observe and comment on relevant national, EU and international legal and policy developments informing and shaping Public Procurement and PPPs.

  • national, EU and international Public Procurement and PPP legal reforms;
  • Sustainable, Responsible and Strategic Public Procurement;
  • compliance with EU Public Procurement, Utilities and Concessions Directives;

  • detection of fraud, corruption and anti-competitive behaviour;
  • interdisciplinary aspects of Procurement and PPP Law (Brexit, Competition and State aid Law, EU funds management etc.)

All manuscripts will be subject to blind peer-review prior to publication and are required to conform to the author guidelines.
