Introduction to EU procurement

** This course is fully booked **

This course is designed to provide delegates with the elementary understanding of EU procurement legislation, procurement procedures for regulated and less regulated procurements. The course is built to equip delegates with enough information concerning how to effectively value, categorise and evaluate tender opportunities, contemplating the different routes to market and the effects of collaboration, while identifying potential risks of supplier challenge and remedial actions available. This course is designed to give delegates a solid grounding of the fundamental legislative requirements and offers a robust refresh for more experienced practitioners, reflecting the 2014 Procurement Directives requirements.
