Public procurement is subject to national and international rules, although not all public procurement is subject to these obligations. Under these rules public sector procurement must follow transparent open procedures, ensuring fair conditions of competition for suppliers. Some purchases can be exempted from the national rules under certain conditions.

Financing transactions is a big challenge. Over the last few years, we have seen an extremely difficult debt finance market. Structures have increased in complexity and timetables have contracted, as the providers of funding have attempted to gain an edge over the competition. Auction processes have become standard on private company acquisitions and public bids have more often than not become competitive.
However, the changing facilities on credit are challenging for those attempting to make and finance acquisitions.
