While not lawyers or representatives of the legal sector, today’s public procurement professional is expected to be well versed in the application of legal limits within the procurement. As such, the aptitude of procurement professionals to comply with legislation, legal principles, and public procurement best practice guidance is critical for not just the success of the function but for the entity as a whole.
