EU Procurement Directives


Briefing on the new EU Procurement Directives

Barbara Linehan, EU Procurement expert

5 June 2014

As most of those involved in the public procurement procurement will be aware, the EU has recently introduced 3 new EU directives on the subject of public procurement. Taken together these 3 directives represent a reform of public procurement rules across the EU.

The directives which were issued by the European Commission are:

  • Award of Concession Contracts
  • Public Procurement
  • Procurement by entities operating in the water, energy, transport and postal services sectors.

Ahead of their introduction into Irish law, the CIF has arranged a briefing to explain the new directives and the various provisions they contain. We are delighted to announce that arguably the pre-eminent expert on EU procurement policy, Ms. Barbara Linehan, will provide a briefing for our members on all aspects of the directives and what they will mean for Irish construction companies.

Like our most recent briefing with Paul Quinn, we expect a large attendance at this event, so early booking is advised.

To book your place just follow the details below.

This is a free CIF event open to all CIF members. However, like all CIF briefings, it will only proceed if sufficient numbers register to attend in advance.

Please note a certificate of attendance will be issued to all those who register in advance and attend the briefing.
