Government procurement is designed to open a level playing field for suppliers competing for government contracts. As the deals keep getting bigger and the stakes keep getting higher, public institutions need to get the job done right. Failing to do so can lead to lengthy litigation, unfavourable audits and detrimental media coverage.

Government Procurement, 5th Edition covers more than four decades of legal developments involving the government procurement process in Canada. Consolidating hundreds of case summaries, this work provides an accessible reference point for procurement professionals to help navigate the day-to-day complexities of the tendering cycle. It also offers legal strategies for proactively building winning conditions for institutional governance.

In his leading source on government procurement cited across industry, the legal profession and the courts, author Paul Emanuelli strips away the complexities of procurement issues for public institutions and their private sector suppliers. Government Procurement, 5th Edition follows these main topics:

  • The impact of trade treaties and public policies on government procurement practices
  • The written rules that apply to government procurement
  • The unwritten implied rules that apply to government procurement
  • The risks and remedies that apply when government procurement rules are breached
  • The practical considerations that can help improve outcomes at the institutional and project level
