Badia)Advocats advises the Balmes University Foundation, as owner of the University of Vic – Universitat Central de Catalunya (Central University of Catalonia), in its works, services and utilities procurement.
Since 2009 Badia)Advocats has been advising the Balmes University Foundation in all the procurement procedures it has had to conduct in compliance with public sector contract legislation. This is because even though the Foundation is a legal entity governed by private law, it is still subject to this legislation as a contracting authority under European directives in this area.
The Parliament of Catalonia Act 5/1997, of 30 May, recognised the University of Vic as a private university. Some years later the Parliament of Catalonia Act 2/2014, of 27 January, authorised the change of its name to the University of Vic – Central University of Catalonia (UVic-UCC). The UVic-UCC has sites in Manresa and Vic and its own public control-private management model which delivers an efficient, responsible and flexible management system.
