EMEA Conferences organize
Bid exclusion risks in Public Procurement Procedures. With focus on Competition and new Data Protection rules related breaches
Bucharest, Crowne Plaza Bucharest, Bulevardul Poligrafiei 1
April 11, 2017
Our conference focuses on the effects of breach of the competition and data protection rules on public procurement procedures, especially with respect to exclusion of bids, award criteria, evaluation of bids and award of contract. The speakers will provide analyses and solutions from EU rules’ perspective, already or soon to be transposed into Romanian legislation.
By attending our conference on April 11 you will receive comprehensive answers to the following questions, among others:
– When is my company at risk of being considered part of a bid rigging endeavor?
– Under which circumstances is my company at risk when deciding to be part of a consortium?
– What kind of information may be exchanged in a consortium without triggering liability under competition and public procurement rules?
– What types of past poor performance of contract and grave professional misconduct lead to risk of bid exclusion?
– When are the personal data rules relevant in public procurement? What types of data protection breaches generate exclusion risks for bidders?
– In which cases the drafting of the award documentation by the bidder leads to competition and public procurement risks for a bidder?
The organizers invited three of the best European Public Procurement practitioners and professors – Peter Trepte, Roger Bickerstaff and Aris Geogopoulos. They will share practical examples and references to CJEU case-law, will discuss details of the cases with the audience and answer the public’s questions.
The conference comprises interactive lectures, coffee break and networking lunch. The event will be run in English.
