Webinar looks at general aspects of new law governing public tenders and contracts
With a close eye on the modernization of bidding and contract legislation, FGV Knowledge will hold a series of webinars this year. The first meeting, called “General Aspects of the New Bidding Law and the Preparatory Stage of Tenders,” will be held on June 25, 2021, at 9 am. It will debate innovations, transition rules, waiver hypotheses and the unenforceability of bidding, as well as describing the preparatory stage of the bidding process.
This series of online meetings will bring together public officials and experts in the area. In the first webinar, the opening remarks will be given by Justice Antonio Saldanha Palheiro of the Superior Court of Appeals, who is also the academic coordinator of FGV Knowledge; Justice Benjamin Zymler of the Federal Audit Court, who is also the academic coordinator of this series of webinars; and Senator Antonio Anastasia (Social Democratic Party, Minas Gerais), who was the rapporteur of Bill 4,253 of 2020 in the Senate, which resulted in the new public tender Law.
There will then be a panel discussion called “Progress and Setbacks Involving Law 14,133 of 2021.” The guest speakers will be lawyer Joel de Menezes Niebuhr and the Economy Ministry’s management secretary, Cristiano Rocha Heckert. The moderator will be Justice Paulo de Tarso Sanseverino of the Superior Court of Appeals. In the second panel discussion, the moderator will be Judge Ricardo Couto de Castro of the Rio de Janeiro State Court of Appeals, who is also an FGV professor and the academic coordinator of FGV Knowledge. The closing speech will be given by Justice Benjamin Zymler.
The new law governing public tenders and contracts (Law 14,133 of 2021) was promulgated on April 1 and it is now in force. It may be used by public sector organizations at all three levels of government (federal, state and municipal).
