Public procurement is an important and rapidly evolving area of practice in the European commercial legal environment, and the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) has been instrumental in shaping the current regime. The size of the market, the volume of transactions between publicand private sectors, and new developments in the interface between sectors has created a need for a comprehensive conceptual framework to assess important law, policy, and jurisprudence. This book offers a lucid and authoritative guide to the development and application of public procurement law in the European Union (EU) and its Member States, with a core focus on the principles and case law of the CJEU. It evaluates the policies which underpin public procurement regulation in theEU and the characteristics of public procurement litigation before the CJEU, and closely examines the Court's approach to different areas of public procurement, with insightful and in-depth analysis of the legislation and case law, and the themes that emerge in relation to the Fundamental Principlesof EU Treaties. The book's holistic approach, comparing EU acquis on public procurement with the Member States' stance on both application and enforcement, make it an important and innovative reference for legal practitioners, judges, policy makers and academics.
Professor Christopher H. Bovis is Professor of European Business Law and H.K. Bevan Chair in Law at the Law School of the University of Hull.

Review from previous edition Praise for the First Edition "This hefty book positions public procurement within the context of the common market, as a discipline within European economic and legal integration. It looks at issues of enforcement and compliance and the role of the European Court of Justice. There is an overview of enforcement and compliance ofthe rules at a national level, including an analysis of the private finance initiative and public private partnerships." - Supply Management
