Awarding Construction Contracts: Do Swedish Adminsitrative Courts Support or Hinder Sustainability

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper, not in proceeding

Abstract

In recent Swedish local government practice, lowest bid has increasingly been replaced as an award criterion for construction contracts by multicriteria approaches, including ecological criteria. The purpose of this investigation is to analyse how court practice influences the development of ecological criteria. Court decisions from 2004 and onwards are analysed in order to answer questions as how ecological sustainability is argued and taken into consideration in court practice. Do public procurers use of sustainability as one base for awarding contracts stand in courts
