Lexis Nexis Public Law analysis written by Jonathan Lewis.

A Slovenian company, tendered for a public contract concerning access to a legal information system. It tendered a price of €0. It did so on the basis that winning the contract would potentially open up new markets for it. In a preliminary ruling, the Court of Justice decided that a contract for no identifiable, financial consideration did not fall within the definition of a contract ‘for pecuniary interest’ within the meaning of Article 2(1)(5) of the Public Contracts Directive.
