Invitation for expressions of interest: New Working Group Announced (Commencing January 2019)

The PLA is pleased to announce the formation of a new working group focusing on a developing area of procurement law. The remit of the working group will cover the application of procurement law to development agreements and development joint ventures particularly in light of the judgment by the Court of Appeal in Faraday Development Ltd v West Berkshire Council [2018] EWCA Civ 2532.

Working groups provide a vibrant platform for PLA members to share their expertise and views on areas of public procurement and all members of the PLA are invited and welcome to join these new groups. Meetings would typically take place by phone and the usual pattern is that the working group puts together a paper which is published on the PLA website. Usually a seminar is also presented, with working group members presenting the sessions at the seminar.

The working group is likely to kick off in the New Year, but those who wish to express an interest in joining the group can email Matthew Mo.
