Links I Liked [Public Procurement]

1. Today is the last day for registrations for the Public Procurement Early Career Researcher Conference which will be held this Friday at the Center for Transnational Legal Studies in London. Attendance is free.

2. UK government’s data chief wants ‘data-as-a-service’ in Whitehall.

3. Californian hospitals suffer cyberattack. I think it's time for us to drop the word "cyber". but nonetheless this emphasis the importance of security/contingency plans to be taken seriously during public procurement procedures.

4. Open Data Impact case studies. Not strictly procurement, but still relevant for our field.

5. Chromebooks making inroads in education. As I have been saying for some time, in what concerns EU public procurement rules digital services are going to be so cheap sooner rather than later that significant business areas will be subject at most to Treaty principles due to the financial thresholds.
