Like all things, the practices of public procurement professionals are regulated based on the common, statutory, and administrative laws that bind and protect the responsibilities of public entities across North America. Practitioners must be empowered to not only identify and define those terms commonly associated with the legal profession but also be able to describe and apply the predominant categories of law within the larger function.
