Abstract

This paper argues that, subject to certain exceptions, public procurement law at national, European or international level should generally not aim to promote social considerations because this compromises the primary objective of effective procurement and the related objectives of value for money, competition, non-discrimination, and transparency.

Keywords: Public procurement, social considerastions, regulation

JEL Classification: K32, H57
