The rules governing public tenders are a hot topic these days, both in the media and on the street. Many managers and elected officials have questions about the extent of their liability in this regard.
Can the individual acts of a manager bind a municipality? What if a manager refuses or neglects to carry out duties required under the law? Or seeks to approve a loan in excess of authorized amounts? At what point does noncompliance with contract adjudication rules incur personal liability? And what are the consequences? To what point are managers and elected officials protected by immunity, if at all?
This workshop is designed to answer these increasingly topical questions and help you understand exactly where your responsibility, and that of your elected officials, begins and ends. We will also look into potential consequences and examine financial protection measures available to defend yourself in case of legal proceedings related to contract tendering.
