The Practice of Public Procurement The Practice of Public Procurement
Philipp Kiiver, Jakub Kodym
When buying goods or services on behalf of a public authority, procurement officers must translate the buyer’s needs into tender documents that are clear, lawful, and well-designed. This guide helps them in this task. Rich in practical examples, it is written for procurement practitioners at all levels of government – from the local to the international – including drafters of calls for tenders, controllers, tender evaluators, managers who authorize public expenditure, risk managers and auditors, as well as for students of public procurement law and public administration.

Comparative Analysis of Merger Control PolicyAcademia Comparative Analysis of Merger Control Policy
Jingyuan Ma
After thirteen years of discussion, the Anti-Monopoly Law of the People’s Republic of China was promulgated on 30 August 2007 and entered into force in August 2008. This book investigates to what extent competition goals may influence merger policy by taking a comparative perspective. To address this central research question, this book focuses on four major issues; the legislative history of the Anti-Monopoly Law and merger policy; the evolution of the debate on competition goals in the US and the EU; the evolution of incorporating the efficiency goal into merger policy; and the question whether competition goals may have an impact on the analysis of merger cases.
