Frank Judo and Maxime Vanderstraeten contributed to the latest edition of the Jaarboek Overheidsopdrachten/Chronique des marchés publics (2016-2017), the annual reference book on the recent developments in public procurement law.
 
Frank Judo wrote a contribution on the concept of “public policy” (openbare orde / ordre public) as applied to public procurement rules. He noted the issues of divergent case law in this regard, and pleads for a nuanced and coherent approach.
 
Maxime Vanderstraeten addressed the differences between the procurement regimes in the classical sectors and in the “utilities” sector (i.e. water, energy, transport and postal services). Although some important differences remain, Maxime saw an increasing convergence between both regimes and envisages the possibility of a merger thereof.
