Introductory note on this volume
"Petru Maior" University of Tirgu-Mures, in partnership with CSDE - Center for European Law Studies of the Institute for Legal Research "Acad. Andrei Radulescu ”of the Romanian Academy, SOROCAPP - Romanian Research Society for Public and Private Affairs and AEXA - Association of Procurement Experts, organized the National Conference on Public Procurement entitled“ One year after the entry into force of the new public procurement legislation ”.
Held in Targu Mures on April 26, 2017, during events dedicated to celebrating the 10 years since Romania is an integral part of the European Union, the conference brought together professionals, professors, researchers, magistrates, lawyers, specialists in the field of public procurement regulation , as well as in the field of application of these regulations.
The main purpose of the conference was that, during the academic debates between representatives of all actors involved in public procurement (contracting authorities, economic operators participating in the procedures for awarding public procurement contracts, consultants, regulatory institutions, monitoring and verification of the procedure), to highlight the effects of the legislative novelties in the matter, but also the problems that appeared in the application and interpretation - administrative and jurisdictional - of the normative acts adopted in May 2016 in the field of public procurement, as a result of Romanian law of the relevant directives, adopted in 2014 by the European Parliament and the Council.
This volume contains nine of the papers discussed at the conference as well as seven other articles that were not presented at that event. The date on which the information contained in the articles was updated, respectively on which the sites mentioned in them were consulted is August 28, 2017, except for some elements included in two of the articles, which were updated on the date of publication of the volume. The authors assume full responsibility for the opinions, citations and authenticity of the materials presented, both the publisher and the coordinators having no responsibility in this regard.
The importance of debating the topic and, implicitly, the importance of this new and current volume results from the fact that, in 2014, the competent authorities of the European Union regulated the vast field of public procurement through a legislative package comprising three new directives (2014/23 / EU - on the award of concession contracts, 2014/24 / EU - on public procurement and 2014/25 / EU - on procurement by entities operating in the water, energy, transport and postal services sectors) and established that the remedies directives remain applicable, and Member States had two years to transpose European rules into national law. Thus, after the application, for a year, by the competent authorities in Romania, of the new legislation in the field of public procurement, it was necessary to analyze the quality of transposition norms but also the application of these norms, problems were identified in the content of regulations. as well as those that appeared during the application of the procedures and the solutions for their remedy were proposed.
The high quality of the scientific approach whose result was materialized in volume is ensured on the one hand by the excellent professional training of the authors, theorists or practitioners of law, professionals from the central or local public administration or from the employer environment, and on the other hand by pertinent analysis through which they treat the approached topics, all being aware that only by using legal instruments in the field of public procurement can be achieved an open, transparent and fair competition and an attractive and sustainable economic environment including Romania and other Member States European Union, and public funds can be used in a fair way and not illegally distort free competition.
The volume contains both articles with a pronounced theoretical, descriptive character, as well as articles with a pronounced practical, applicative character, as well as, for the most part, articles that necessarily and usefully combine the two components, all bringing the necessary clarifications including by resorting to recent doctrine. , to the national jurisprudence or to the jurisprudence in the matter of the European Court of Human Rights or of the Court of Justice of the European Union, precisely for the most correct understanding and application of the vast and at the same time very technical field of public procurement.
Convinced that this volume, like the proceedings of the conference which formed the basis of its elaboration, will be useful to both theorists and r and, equally to those who are preparing to become professionals in the field of public procurement, we recommend this work to all.
