Contracting authorities in the EU spend around 2 trillion euros per year on pubic contracts. This represents 14% - 20 % of the EUs GDP. This research aims to determine the impact of public procurement regulation on teaming between economic operators in the construction sector. A functional comparative research method is applied. EU Law, Spanish, Dutch and Belgian Law are considered.
