Interactive Workshop

7-8 June 2017 | Brussels

If you have any questions in regards to the programme of the upcoming training or would like to get more information about it please contact Gael Langosch.

Within the EU Public Procurement Reform in 2014 the Utilities Directive 2014/25/EU and Directive 2014/23/EU on the award of concession contracts have been adopted.
State-owned and commercial entities, operating in the utilities sector, such as gas, electric transport and water firms,  are obliged to apply the EU procurement policy when they purchase goods, services and works to pursue an activity in one of these sectors.
The rules adopted with the Concessions Directive allow public policy makers to use public contracts and concessions more effectively, modernise public sector and contribute to a more equitable and sustainable model of growth.

During this course you will learn how to choose the right procurement regime for your tender, how to handle cross-border procurement, learn about the procurement procedure for affiliated undertakings and utilities, you will be updated on the award procedures in utilities procurement and learn about concessions in the utilities sector.
