The Allotment of Award Procedures and Competition Law


Laurent Ayache and Charlotte Michellet wrote this bylined article on the allotment issues in contract award procedures used by public sector buyers. The authors wrote that, under competition law, these issues either impose on public purchasers the use of allotment procedures (or certain requirements), or repress the practices of candidates having the effect of reducing or eliminating the pro-competitive effects of the use of allotments.
