A clear view on legal issues
We act as an advisor and external expert for policy makers (on both national and European level), give advice and guidance to contracting authorities and conduct research in the field of public procurement (specifically in relation to innovation and sustainability). Expertise areas include large ICT infrastructure, construction, public utilities (e.g. water)and R&D projects.
In the last few years, we have increasingly been involved in supporting governmental institutions and contracting authorities to embed policy issues, such as innovation, Small and Medium Enterprises (SME) participation and sustainability, in their procurement strategies. Social sustainability is one of the most recent focus areas that CORVERS has specialized on. We are broadening our expertise level to these new policy areas, in order to understand both the legal rationale and the effectiveness of using the procurement instrument as a way to achieve policy goals.
Our business concept is to provide clients with the knowledge and expertise required at all stages of the legal process chain (from research to consultancy). To this end, CORVERS provides academic research, policy advice, legal advice and support during the (pre-)procurement procedure and the contractual phase. These activities are supported by in-house development of electronic knowledge instruments and tools, legal analytic databases and legal process management tools.
Services we provide to governmental bodies are:
