- Dr Cyril Chern, Crown Office Chambers, Construction Law Journal

Public procurement rules are intended to ensure the best terms for government and the adequate protection of suppliers and contractors who sell their goods and services to the State. This practical title is particularly timely given the evolution and improvement in public procurement regimes in many jurisdictions.

This unique title contains contributions from leading experts around the world who explain the best practice in public procurement in their jurisdictions. In addition to 19 jurisdictional chapters by leading professionals, featured chapters include contributions on United Nations best practice, the European directives, how countries are fighting corruption in the field and how PPP projects are procured.
