In early 2014 the EU adopted three new procurement directives. These will introduce numerous and radical changes to the current rules, as well as regulating concession contracts fully for the first time. This edition of the work regarded as 'the bible' on procurement issues provides a detailed explanation of the legal and policy framework for procurement in the EU and UK, including full analysis of how the 2014 directives will change the rules.

This 3rd Edition will publish in two Volumes: Volume 1 detailing the core public sector rules, and Volume 2 covering more specialist areas such as utilities and defence, as well as enforcement and remedies.
