Law researcher Panades publishes article on public procurement

Truman Bodden Law School LLM course leader Laura Panades’ latest research, on public procurement, has been published in The Round Table, a leading, refereed journal on Commonwealth studies.

It covers important developments in law and policy.

This publication underwent a thorough double-blind peer review for quality assurance, and is evidence of the world-class skills of Cayman’s civil service.

Public procurement regulates public purchases with the private sector. It affects more than CI$100 million yearly. It arrived onto Cayman’s shore three years ago. The system might be recent, but it is here to stay.

Cayman’s efforts are part of a good governance wave sweeping the Caribbean. However, they include unique features for our country.
