Gosling, Philip
Between 1980 and 2000, local authorities in the UK were required by the Local Government, Planning and Land Act 1980, and later by the Local Government Acts of 1988 and 1992, to demonstrate competitiveness in procurement through a statutory Compulsory Competitive Tendering (CCT) procedure regulated by the Secretary of State. Although CCT was abolished in January 2000, its intensive application over a 20-year period has left a lasting legacy in the conduct of local public procurement in the UK. In addition, the interaction of CCT and European law - in particular, that relating to public procurement and the transfer of undertakings - continues to have significance for local authorities throughout the EU. This book is the outcome of research into the effects of CCT on two English local authorities. Its detailed analysis examines the CCT legislation, the principal legal and practical issues that it raised both in the UK and for the EU, its effects on the two local authorities selected for study and the broader implications for local public procurement in general. 294pp.

Green, Roger and Trigoso, Joana
N.B.Top inch of book spine has been bumped otherwise As New.This book is copiously illustrated with archive photographs as well as high quality pictures depicting the Portuguese golf resorts developed under the Jordan Group banner, including photographs of many of the world's top golfers in action and famous personalities from sport, show-business, politics and business who attended the many major events organised by the Group. The main theme of the book centres on how the Andre Jordan Group changed the whole course of golfing history in Europe and boosted tourism in the Algarve by setting a new trend in golf and leisure resort development which others were later to imitate if not equal. Quinta do Lago, based on the American country club concept, was the first of its kind in Portugal and it became the blueprint for the future development of residential golf resorts in Portugal. The emphasis in the editorial is on creativity and innovation and especially the Group's commitment to strict eco-friendly principles in the design and construction or renovation and management of quality resorts (ie: Quinta do Lago, Belas Clube de Campo and Vilamoura) which today boast championship courses recognised as world class. The story also strongly underlines the imaginative marketing and new ideas that, for example, brought the Portuguese Open to Quinta da Lago in 1976 and helped to keep the championship on the European calendar at a very difficult time. A further series of seven Opens were to follow at Quinta do Lago as well as many other major tournaments such as the Algarve World Cup and the Taca Presidente da Republica. These events attracted worldwide Press and TV coverage, thereby promoting the region as a tourist destination and doing much to encourage investment. Some of the most prominent names in the world of golf have contributed information, recollections, anecdotes and commendations on the achievements of the Andre Jordan Group and this has done much to enliven and enrich the editorial. They include Arnold Palmer, Colin Montgomerie, William 'Rocky' Roquemore, William Hawtree, Ken Schofield, and, Peter Adams.248pp.
