Today there is a conference "Revision of the Public Procurement Law - key legislative postulates of the Association", organized by the Public Procurement Law Association and the Chair of European Law at the University of Warsaw.
After reviewing the functioning of the law's regulations and evaluating its regulation in the context of achieving the objectives of procurement directives and practical aspects of its application, the Association has developed a set of postulates, which it perceives as key areas requiring improvement. The result of the analysis will be presented during today's conference in the form of a report.
In connection with this event, an interview appeared in the Rzeczpospolita daily with Mirella Lechna-Marchewka, a legal counsel and a member of the Association's board, in which she discussed some of the postulates. She drew attention to the problem of excluding contractors from tenders on the basis of imposed contractual penalties, emphasizing that a penalty does not always mean the contractor's unreliability. She questioned the practice of imposing contract content by the ordering party and the difficulties in claiming compensation. She pointed out that the Public Procurement Law Association proposes amendments for better implementation of EU law and clarity of national regulations.
The conversation is also available in the electronic version of the daily.
