Keidi Kõiv speaks on due diligence for contracting authorities and tenderers at Public Procurement Conference on 29 October
Every autumn, the Addenda
training centre organises a large conference on public procurement, which
brings together hundreds of well-known actors in the field – law makers, contracting authorities, tenderers and lawyers. The conference
summarised the key events of the year in public procurement, analysed the
bottlenecks and problematic cases, current court decisions and consequent
changes in the field.
At this year’s conference,
RASK public procurement expert Keidi Kõiv gave a talk on the due diligence of
contracting authorities and tenderers. In her presentation, Keidi provided an
overview of the development and interpretation of the duty of due diligence
based on examples of contestation and case law, and discusses how far diligence
can and should be taken, and whether the scope of due diligence as developed in
practice can be considered reasonable.
