The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic crisis on public procurement procedures

On May 13th 2020 colleagues Marko Kallay and Mara Terihaj had held a webinar on the impact of the CODIV-19 pandemic crisis on public procurement procedures. Due to the pandemic crisis the possibilities for the use of the funds from the State Budget have been limited by the Decision of the Government of the Republic of Croatia which has had an immediate impact on the initiated and on planned procurement procedures.
In addition, the colleagues have also discussed the possibility of amending and modifying public procurement contracts over its duration and the possibilities and manner of applying the institute of compulsory law to public procurement contracts, as well as the recommendations of the competent ministry and the European Commission's guidelines and procedures in cases of extreme urgency.

Webinar: GDPR compliance in context of COVID-19 outbreak in Croatia

We held a very successful webinar focused on providing information to data controllers on how to act as a controller while there is a virus outbreak given that data protection rules (such as GDPR) do not hinder measures taken in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic. We tried to cover and provide answers to most of the frequently asked questions arising out of the GDPR requirements during this specific situation and lack of DPA detailed guidance in situation as this one. the webinar included our guest speaker specialising in information security which made the topic rounded and our answers comprehensive to most of our listeners.
