Regulating Contracts

Hugh Collins

Oxford University Press

This chapter considers the regulation of contracts used by governments for the delivery of public services. Although these contracts provoke many of the distributive issues already considered, such as relations of domination, unfairness, and poor quality, they also present particular difficulties for adequate self-regulation by parties. The chapter addresses the question of what kind of legal regulation can best assist governments in the use of markets to deliver services to the public.

Keywords:   public services, government contracts, contractual regulation, quality, cooperation, quasi-contract
