The Republic Commission for the Protection of Rights in Public Procurement Procedures regularly informs the expert and the general public about its positions deriving from the decisions it took when deciding in procedures for the protection of rights. In addition to publishing its decisions on the Republic Commission’s website and the Public Procurement Portal, these activities over the last six years also encompassed regular editions of the “Bulletin of the Case Law” of the Republic Commission.
Continuing the practice that started with the first edition of the Bulletin in 2014, the Republic Commission, with support of the Mission of the Organization for Security and Co-Operation in Europe (OSCE) to the Republic of Serbia, has prepared and published “Bulletin of the Case Law” No. 10-11/2019, dedicated to “THE EFFECTS OF THE APPLICATION OF THE PUBLIC PROCUREMENT LAW THROUGH THE CASE LAW OF THE REPUBLIC COMMISSION FOR THE PROTECTION OF RIGHTS IN PUBLIC PROCUREMENT PROCEDURES“ , as edition in Serbian language.
Since the previous issue of “Bulletin of the Case Law” No. 8-9/2018, also published in English, was well received by stakeholders and, as an example of good practice, praised by domestic expert public and by relevant experts of the European Commission, and with a view to encouraging wider competition in public procurement, the Republic Commission prepared this edition in English, as well.
In addition to the author’s texts elaborating certain expert topics based on the practice of the Republic Commission when adjudicating in the procedures for the protection of rights, Bulletin No. 10-11/2019 also covered the effects of the application of the Public Procurement Law (“Official Gazette of the RS”, Nos. 124/2012, 14/2015 and 68/2015), presented through the data deriving from the case law of the Republic Commission. Considering that the new Public Procurement Law shall be applied starting from 1st July 2020, the interested expert public may benefit from such insight in the previous work and the effects of the application of prior legal solutions and institutes in the practice of the Republic Commission so to get a clearer picture about further direction of development of the system of protection of rights in the Republic of Serbia.
