Administrative Law / Droit administratif

 Various pieces of legislation were published in Portugal in 2007 with special refer­ence to the field of public law. Also during 2007 the project of the Code of Public Contracts (CPC) was publicly discussed and approved by the Portuguese govern­ment. The CPC establishes the legal regime of both public procurement (Part II) and the substantive regime of public contracts which have the nature of adminis­tra­tive con­tracts and its performance (Part III). In doing so, the CPC not only trans­poses into national law the European directives on public tendering but also creates a single, uniform and coherent legal regime to replace the unjustified exis­tence of sev­eral very different and specific regimes. It is the first time in the Portu­guese le­gal or­der that a single legislative act has such a scope - regulating these two as­pects of ad­min­istrative law in a coherent and unified way. For all these rea­sons, it is the most important milestone in the evolution of the Portuguese admin­istrative law in the last years.
