GGP Conference "The Internationalization of Government Procurement Regulation"

Dates:
  • Mon 15 Dec 2014 09.00 - 18.00
  • Tue 16 Dec 2014 09.00 - 18.00
  Add to Calendar 2014-12-15 9:00 2014-12-16 18:00 Europe/Paris GGP Conference "The Internationalization of Government Procurement Regulation"

The aim of this project is twofold.
Firstly to examine the process of internationalisation of procurement regulation, by looking at the main instruments/processes that carry it forward. The aim here is not to undertake a historical analysis of the process of internationalisation of procurement policy regimes that has occurred over the last 20 years, but to better understand the drivers of this process. This includes international cooperation in UNCITRAL (where model laws regarding government procurement are being elaborated), the WTO (with its own agreement), as well as preferential trade agreements (PTAs), which on occasion include chapters on this score.
Secondly, to discuss issues that are important for the further development of internationalisation of public procurement policies and improving the efficacy and efficiency of procurement processes, in particular collection and reporting of statistics on procurement; sustainable procurement; instruments for the support of SMEs and more generally the pursuit of industrial policy objectives; and enforcement and accountability mechanisms (including alternative dispute resolution instruments). A particular attention will be paid to enforcement.
The examination of these issues/areas will have as a point of reference specific national and regional or bilateral experiences/regulatory frameworks. The country/region focus will introduce a comparative angle, which is important in order to assess the extent of internationalisation of government procurement policy.
