Public Procurement Law is an influential and highly topical field of public policy and legislation which holds an important place within EU economic law. This area is evolving rapidly and is becoming increasingly more litigious. This has created a booming public procurement-related industry in the past few years.
A thorough understanding of public procurement law protects public bodies and utilities from challenge and informs tenderers, funders or other interested parties - protecting their rights in such competitions. On completion of this course, graduates will have a thorough knowledge of public procurement laws, the tendering process and the judicial review process. The Course will be presented by top barristers and partners of large law firms who are practicing in this area.
This is the first university level diploma in public procurement in Ireland.
Students must complete 30 credits. The programme offers three compulsory modules, which will be delivered throughout Semesters 1 and 2.
Lectures will be delivered on a Friday evening (three hours) and on a Saturday morning (three hours) each week throughout the two semesters (October to May).
This is a crucial qualification for practitioners and other decision makers working for public bodies and utilities who have responsibility for the tendering process. However, a concise knowledge of public procurement is also important for anyone influenced by how this European requirement is shaping Irish procurement policy.
Applicants must have a recognised primary degree which is considered equivalent to Irish university primary degree level. In exceptional circumstances consideration will be given to candidates who do not hold a primary degree, but who do have relevant work experience in the area of public procurement.
