#9 Transfer of Competences & books we wished we wrote
- What is a transfer of competences and responsibilities in EU public procurement law?
- What role does it play in the national organization of public tasks?
- How does it differ from the award of a public contract?
- What is the role of article 4(2) TFEU in harnessing the influence of EU law?
- What are the books we wished we wrote?
- Why we like them so much?
In today’s episode, we discuss transfer of competences and responsibilities in light of article 1(6) Directive 2014/24/EU and the relevant case-law including Remondis and Porin Kaupunki. The key question here is how it differs from the award of a public contract, and how this plays out for the national organization of public tasks. For desert, we discuss two books we wish we wrote.
Let’s dish up public procurement law!
