Why Bestek?

Bestek discusses the world of public procurement law
Through our discussions, we hope to contribute to solutions and a better understanding of public procurement law.
Bestek makes research accessible
Research results often do not reach the place in which it matters the most. This podcast aims to make such findings accessible to the public procurement world. It provides a starting point for discussions between academics, attorneys, public officials, contracting officers, judges and policymakers.
Bestek improves the public image of public procurement
Ultimately, Bestek hopes to contribute to a better understanding of public procurement (law). The public debate often sketches a somewhat limited view of the added value and workings of public procurement rules and practices. Bestek attempts to fight fake news and aims to balance the debate by highlighting benefits and negative effects.
