PPW - a Tool for a Complex World

Can a bidder claim the costs of tendering in Brazil? Does the public healthcare provider in Italy have to apply public procurement law? What set of procurement rules applies for the Australian armed forces? Do national restrictions apply for procurements in Thailand? These are questions that everyone doing business in the public sector has encountered.

Across the world, public procurement law has become well established as an independent field of law governed by its own complex rules. And everywhere almost all industries and economic sectors are affected by public procurement regulation. Despite this common basis, there are still major differences between national jurisdictions and practices, which everyone doing business with public sector customers must take into account. In addition, as procurement affects many disciplines, those who are involved in public procurement – both private companies and public contracting authorities – often have different vantage points and just as often tend to apply widely differing approaches to solving issues.

Hence, it was and remains an area where those with a broad range of competencies stand a better chance of unraveling the complexities of tendering without incurring unpredictable legal risks.

Baker McKenzie’s Public Procurement World leverages our global expertise in public procurement law in order to help you face the challenges of doing business in the public sector around the world.
