Public procurement officials control 38.5% of the United States Gross Domestic Product through annual acquisition of $4.85 trillion in goods and services. This text has been developed by the National Institute of Governmental Purchasing to provide a bridge between those who operate within the public sector and academia as a first step toward identifying the body of knowledge associated with public procurement.
The Legal Aspects of Public Purchasing provides a glimpse into the legal framework that governs public contracting. Procurement professionals must know and understand the law of contracts and its application within the context of public purchasing. Every procurement agent should be familiar with the underlying principals of contract law and the legal consequences of an action. Complete with a glossary of common legal terms that are relevent to the public procurement profession, this book focuses on the most critical and frequently employed elements of the law of contracts.
