This first supplement to the 10th edition of Keating on Construction Contracts brings the text completely up-to-date across all areas.

Keating on Construction Contracts is a leading reference work which provides a comprehensive account of the rules governing procurement by public authorities and utilities in the UK, including those operating in the defence sector. It offers a detailed explanation of the regulations implementing EU public procurement directives and their enforcement. It also covers national rules on lower value procurement and related topics.

Key cases in the European and UK courts are analysed and important or problematic issues are illuminated with the help of EU and UK government guidance.
