things clear.

Public procurement & PPP

Public authorities can call on contractors, service providers or suppliers to carry out works, provide services or supply products. For this purpose, the contracting authority must conclude an agreement. Before it can do so, however, the public authority in question must in principle award a contract in accordance with the principles of equality of tenderers and free and fair competition.

Regulations governing public procurement are complex and change rapidly. As a result, government advisers and tenderers are faced with many legal questions and issues.

The execution of procurement is also subject to strict regulations, meaning the various parties involved must act with proper care and seek advice when necessary. This is particularly the case in PPP arrangements, where the public authority works together with one or more private partners to implement a project.

We offer assistance and advice relating to, among other aspects:
  • preparing and submitting tenders;
  • making the contract award decisions;
  • the execution of public procurement;
  • PPP arrangements;
  • drawing up DBFM contracts;
  • completing various formalities to ensure the equality of tenderers;
  • proceedings before the civil and administrative courts in disputes relating to irregularities and illegalities in the awarding of public contracts, in defence of both public authorities and tenderers.
