This paper provides some initial thoughts on the new rules on exclusion, qualitative selection and short-listing in the new public sector procurement directive bound to repeal Directive 2004/18. The assessment is based on a comparison with the equivalent rules under the current Directive, as well as on the problems and implementation difficulties that the author envisages.
