In 2015, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) developed a Handbook on Key Judicial Skills and Competencies for Members of Procurement Review Tribunals (2015). The Handbook aims to enhance the capacity of relevant national public procurement review bodies in the countries where the EBRD operates.
In 2020, the Handbook has been localised for Ukraine by the EBRD in cooperation with the Antimonopoly Committee of Ukraine. The Handbook covers such topics as procedural fairness, conflict of interest, evidence and procedure, confidential information, approach to remedies, discretion and writing decisions. To this end, a webinar aims to present the localised version of Handbook for Ukraine and discuss the concept of procedural fairness in public procurement review.
The objectives of the Webinar are the following:
- To present the localised version of the Handbook for Ukraine;
- To discuss the notion of procedural fairness in light of the main principles of public procurement
- To reflect on the requirment to conduct oral hearings in review procedure in light of the EU standards and best practices in the EU member states
