Directive 2014/24/EU on public procurement: what's new?

Presentation by Professor Kris Wauters,  Faculté de droit et de criminologie, Centre Montesqieu d'études de l'action publique, Collège Thomas More  

The Directives on public procurement contain a rather detailed legislation that, as the European institutions adopt new generations of Directives, leads to a constantly diminishing margin for maneuver for Member States when going through the process of transposition. Directive 2014/24/EU aims at simplification’ and flexibility of the rules to improve value for money. The Directive aims also to enable public contracts to be better used to support other EU policies. The presentation wants to demonstrate if these aims have been achieved in the texts. To that extend, a brief overview will be given of the most important modifications in legislation.

The seminar is open to all interested parties. Refreshments will be served. For questions, please contact Alla Pozdnakova (
