Abstract:

The last decade has brought huge changes in the legal regulation of public purchasing. These changes stem from two main sources: (1) the implementation of national reform programmes in public procurement, especially in developing countries & in countries transitioning from planned to market economies, encouraged by such institutions as the World Bank & UNCITRAL, & (2) efforts to open government procurement markets to international trade through regional agreements & the World Trade Organisation. Many states have had to modify their national procurement rules for the first time. The book covers both domestic & international perspectives on public procurement regulation & examines their interrelationship. Specific topics addressed include the following: . the UNCITRAL Model Law & its influence on procurement reform, . problems of reform in developing & transition economies, . World Bank procurement procedures, . the implications of information technology for procurement.

Regulation, . the challenge of widening participation in global & regional agreements & of making these agreements work, . regulating defence procurement, & . the use of procurement to promote social & environmental policies. Public Procurement: Global Revolution brings together the leading experts from academia, practice, & international institutions to describe the major global developments that have occurred in public procurement regulation & to examine some key current policy issues. The dynamic nature of the topic & the quality of coverage make this a useful, interesting resource for academics in the fields of international law & economics as well as practitioners & officials involved in international trade.
