The Internationalization of Government Procurement Regulation

Arwel Davies

Oxford University Press

The WTO Agreement on Government Procurement (GPA) is the most significant international instrument of procurement market liberalization. This chapter assesses the GPA’s development and objectives with reference to its relationship with national procurement regulation, and other international instruments. The GPA’s achievements and deficiencies are considered in a number of areas, including expansion of membership and coverage, domestic review procedures, and statistical reporting. The chapter comments on the new work program directed towards enhancing the participation of SMEs and removing discrimination in this area. It also raises questions about the Appellate Body’s interpretation of the GATT procurement derogation in Canada-Renewable Energy.

Keywords:   GPA, procurement market liberalization, regulation, review procedures, statistical reporting, SMEs, GATT
