Summary Public procurement law, the rules regulating purchase of goods and serviceby public agencies, is an area of great economic interest. In the EuropeanUnion, total public expenditure on goods, works and services amountedto over €2,400 billion in 2010.1 While the main focus on the EU level hasbeen on facilitating competition, transparency, non-discrimination andanti-corruption,2 the last decade has seen a growing recognition of theimportance of employing economic drivers to promote overarching societalgoals. Next to the objective of increasing the simplicity and flexibilityof EU public procurement law, a major aim of the 2014 ProcurementDirectives of the EU3 is to enlarge the possibilities for using public procurementin support of broader social and environmental goals.
