Canada's uniquely complex bidding and tendering process with respect to government projects
Government procurement is designed to open a level playing field for suppliers competing for government contracts. As the deals keep getting bigger and the stakes keep getting higher, public institutions need to get the job done right. Failing to do so can lead to lengthy litigation, unfavourable audits and detrimental media coverage.
In his leading source on government procurement cited across industry, the legal profession and the courts, author Paul Emanuelli strips away the complexities of procurement issues for public institutions and their private sector suppliers. Government Procurement, 4th Edition follows these main topics:
- The impact of trade treaties and public policies on government procurement practices
- The written rules that apply to government procurement
- The unwritten implied rules that apply to government procurement
- The risks and remedies that apply when government procurement rules are breached
- The practical considerations that can help improve outcomes at the institutional and project level
New in This Edition
- An expanded new Preface with an overview of the most critical trends impacting the law of public procurement
- Update on all of the cross-Canada reported decisions, including over a hundred notable new tribunal and court decisions, along with an updated consolidation of recent high-profile government procurement audits
