Gruia Dufaut



Last updated: 4 June 2020

We will focus on the main threats and trends noticed during the pandemic regarding GDPR Compliance and public procurement processes from a supplier/tender perspective. The new normal of operating under lockdown is giving companies the opportunity to take new measures in order to protect and stabilise their business.

We will offer legal insights and discuss the following key-elements:

  • How, even in these exceptional time, GDPR rules and regulations must be adhered to and how they are, perhaps, more important than ever;

  • Balancing employee privacy and public health and safety; health screening and tracking measures during and after COVID-19: what to expect? What to avoid?

  • GDPR’s measures to consider for safe teleworking and cybersecurity preparedness;

  • Procurement process acting as a commercial incentive for tenders;

  • Negotiated procedures without public prior publication ;

  • Dealing with public procurement contracts in Covid-19 time and mitigating associated litigation risks.
