Synopsis: All purchasing activities take place within a context of legal regulation, a context that has been taking on increasing importance in recent years. This book provide a clear and concise account of the underlying legal principles which affect the purchasing function. A new component of the third edition is an additional appendix which contains recent cases involving procurement law issues. These are kept separate from the main body of the book and are not essential for purposes of revising for the Legal Aspects exam. However, they do provide useful examples of how the courts have been interpreting the law in relation to a wide range of procurement activities in the recent past. These include the EU public procurement rules, contract formation, assessment of claimable damages, limitations of liability, the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations, the Freedom of Information Act, and the Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act.

About the Author: Ian has worked in a consultancy capacity for a number of organisations in recent years including the Chartered Institute of Purchasing & Supply for a review of its Graduate Diploma. Other consultancy work involved the Qualifications & Curriculum Authority & EdExcel. Much of his training involvement has been in-company (both in the public and private sectors), raising awareness of the role and meaning of company terms and conditions for procurement staff and others with contract management responsibilities. Ian has substantial experience in delivering professional and management programmes relating to procurement law. Topics have included contract law, drafting of effective terms and conditions, contract management, and the implications of TUPE on outsourcing activities. His style is informal and 'user-friendly', encouraging extensive group participation and interaction - an approach that has been extremely effective in the field of legal training. Ian is an examiner for the CIPS at the Foundation Stage of the Graduate Diploma (Legal & Procurement Processes). He has produced Study guides on Legal Modules for a number of organisations and has written articles for Supply Management on legal issues. HIs book on Purchasing Law was published in 2005.
