Abstract:In 2013 there was a committee installed, the Committee of Tendering Experts, to improve the quality of public procurement within the Netherlands. The businesses and contracting parties involved in a tender can file a complaint and the CVAE will assess this. The CVAE will give a non-binding statement and, if necessary, an advice on how to proceed in the tendering process. The public showed her enthusiasm when an approachable system was establishment as it was widely believed that such a ‘thing’ was missing in the past. Would this committee finally fill the gap between arguments and disagreement on a low level and the long way of going to court? The CVAE started with the appointment of two men, both legal experts. Two years after the installment of the CVAE an important question arises. Was the procurement practice also taken into account by these experts in procurement law? And would the statements of the CVAE be any different when the committee would consist of business experts instead of legal experts? To see if the background of its members has had any impact on the statements an experiment was conducted.
