New paper: Public procurement financial thresholds in the EU and their relationship with the GPA

I have just uploaded to my SSRN repository a new paper which will be published later this year in the European Procurement and Public Private Partnership Law Review (EPPPL). The paper is focused on the relationship between the EU procurement thresholds and the GPA, arguing that the current threshold levels are arbitrary and effectively set by the EU's GPA commitments. Here's the abstract:

This is the second paper of my "thresholds trilogy", with the first one focusing on cross-border interest for contracts below-thresholds (also available on SSRN). I am currently drafting the third one which will argue that we should make do with thresholds altogether or else we will never complete the internal market.
