Public Administration Probity Screening Act

Het Bibob Expertteam knows the Public Administration Probity Screening Act inside out…

As an administrative authority you want to operate with integrity. This has really become a key issue since the scope of the Bibob (Public Administration Probity Screening Act) has been extended to include the real estate sector and importers of fireworks. Administrative authorities also have more possibilities to carry out investigations themselves. This means that you can make more frequent, more effective and more efficient use of the Public Administration Probity Screening Act. But when should you request advice regarding the Public Administration Probity Screening Act? How far can you go or should you go with your own investigation? And how does the Act work in practice with regard to property transactions and tenders?

Guaranteeing the Public Administration Probity Screening Act in policy is crucial
In practice, we notice that where tenders and property transactions are concerned, it is crucial for administrative authorities to guarantee the Public Administration Probity Screening Act in the policy, the tender documents and processes in order to apply the Act effectively and to prevent problems. Cases regularly fail because it has not been adequately worked out whether the Public Administration Probity Screening Act set of instruments will be applied in concrete tenders and how which sometimes results in preliminary relief proceedings. Procurement law sets very high requirements for transparency beforehand. Contracting entities cannot therefore automatically assume that an existing generic statutory power in this regard will be sufficient.
