In this way, the Model Law is intended to address the main problem of secured transactions laws around the world, that is, the multiplicity of regimes that creates gaps and inconsistencies. Chapter III contains a number of detailed provisions on appointment, challenge, termination of mandate and replacement of an arbitrator. The above are only two variations of the two-stage tendering procurement method. Article 24 1 provides that, unless the parties have validly agreed that no oral hearings for the presentation of evidence or for oral argument be held, the arbitral tribunal shall hold such hearings at an appropriate stage of the proceedings, if so requested by a party. A global survey of national laws on arbitration revealed considerable disparities not only as regards individual provisions and solutions but also in terms of development and refinement. Article 18 embodies the basic principle that the parties shall be treated with equality and each party shall be given a full opportunity of presenting his case.

Accordingly, achieving value for money in procurement and avoiding abuse are critical. For that purpose, an arbitration clause shall be treated as an agreement independent of the other terms of the contract, and a decision by the arbitral tribunal that the contract is null and void shall not entail ipso jure the invalidity of the arbitration clause. As regards the term "commercial", no hard and fast definition could be provided. Article 26 2 obliges the expert, after having delivered his written or oral report, to participate in a hearing where the parties may put questions to him and present expert witnesses in order to testify on the points at issue, if such a hearing is requested by a party or deemed necessary by the arbitral tribunal.

This type of arbitration is currently not known or used in all legal systems and there exists no uniform understanding as regards the precise scope of the power of the arbitral tribunal. The Model Law therefore represents a significant development in terms of coverage. The law provides that all procedures are subject to rigorous transparency mechanisms and requirements to promote competition and objectivity. Recourse against award

Here, the importance of supporting regulations other relevant laws such as those governing public financial management and e-commerce, for example and well-functioning institutions to guide, regulate and monitor the performance of the system were emphasized. A key feature of this procurement method is that the submission of proposals takes place in two stages.

The Model Law takes this philosophy one step further by directly limiting the reasons for setting aside. The Model Law recognises the risk that certain provisions of one state's insolvency laws may be repugnant to another state, and creates a public policy exception in relation to foreign laws, [6] although the guidance notes express the hope that this would be utilised rarely in commercial insolvency matters.

Unexpected and undesired restrictions found in national laws relate, for example, to the parties' ability effectively to submit future disputes to arbitration, to their power to select the arbitrator freely, or to their interest in having the arbitral proceedings conducted according to the agreed rules of procedure and with no more court involvement than is appropriate.

The Model Law allows government purchasers to take advantage of modern commercial techniques, such as e-procurement and framework agreements, to allow them to maximize value for money in procurement.
