Public Procurement is often considered to be a purely legal affair, dominated by big law firms and complicated legal considerations. The aim of this research project was to provide a practical guide for the implementation process of the new EU-Public Procurement Directive. Focus has been given to best practices as they offer a good overview of what is legally possible within the still paramount guiding principles of the Directive, namely transparency and non-discrimination. The report starts with a legal evaluation of the new rules. The following chapter gives a brief overview of the ECJ-jurisprudence related to social aspects in public procurement, followed by a final chapter dedicated to good practices. Also available in German, French, Dutch and Italian.
