The Internationalization of Government Procurement Regulation

This chapter considers how, and the extent to which, the process of international law-making contributes to the internationalization of regulations and their use. With reference to the development of the UNCITRAL Model Law on Public Procurement and other UNCITRAL texts, which are designed to promote the harmonization of domestic laws, the stages in the UNCITRAL process—both as they were conceived and as they work in practice—are described and examined. The benefits of the consensus-based UNCITRAL approach are considered, as are the implications of success being contingent upon broad, representative, and effective participation. Observations about some politicization of the process are examined, as this politicization can prevent the emergence of both good technical solutions and consensus, and the chapter concludes that securing sufficient participation remains an ongoing challenge.

Keywords:   UNCITRAL, international law-making, public procurement, politicization, internationalization of regulations, harmonization of domestic laws
