Die Entwicklung des Standards International Financial Reporting Standard (IFRS) 4 Versicherungsverträge beschäftigt das International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) bereits seit über einem Jahrzehnt. Noch vor Verabschiedung des endgültigen Standards im März 2004 wurde das Projekt in zwei Phasen unterteilt. Der im Jahre 2005 in Kraft getretene Standard beinhaltete lediglich Ansatzkriterien bezüglich Versicherungsverträgen, eine Bewertung erfolgt bis heute noch nach lokalen Rechnungslegungsvorschriften. Die Vergleichbarkeit und Entscheidungsnützlichkeit der Abschlüsse von Versicherungsunternehmen ist deshalb selbst auf nationaler Ebene nur eingeschränkt gegeben. Ziel dieser Studie ist die Darstellung der aktuellen Entwicklungen des IFRS 4 hinsichtlich Konzeption, Zielsetzung und Umsetzung des für Versicherungsunternehmen relevanten Standards. Im Zentrum steht dabei, neben einer Darstellung der regulatorischen Grundlagen von Versicherungsverträgen, die Aufarbeitung des aktuellen Projektstands „Insurance Contracts“ des IASB.

Die Bauwirtschaft befindet sich seit Jahren in der Krise. Steigender Wettbewerbsdruck, daraus folgender Preiskampf sowie eine starke Zunahme der Insolvenzen pragen die Branche. Der Allianzvertrag versucht durch seinen kooperativen Charakter neuartige Wege aus der Krise der Bauwirtschaft aufzuzeigen und verstarkt das Projekt in den Vordergrund zu rucken. Allianzvertrage kommen bisher nahezu ausschliesslich im anglo-amerikanischen Raum zur Anwendung. Ein innovatives Vergutungssystem, eine -no blame - no dispute--Kultur und das Einstimmigkeitsprinzip tragen dazu bei, alle Parteien auf eine -best for project--Atmosphare einzuschworen. Dieses Buch behandelt den Allianzvertrag am Beispiel Australiens sowie seine Umsetzung in deutsches Recht unter besonderer Berucksichtigung des Gesellschafts- und Vergaberechts."

Public Enterprises (PEs), especially in several developing countries, face many problems, including poor management of the interface between government and the PEs, unclear or multiple objectives, nepotism and poor remuneration. The performance of those PEs, which for one reason or another must remain in the public sector, continues to be a source of concern to stakeholders. This book sets out in some detail the mechanisms for determining enterprise performance and a framework for assessing enterprise productivity across the board. It explains the concept and methodology of the performance contracting system and provides case studies from five countries to clarify the approach.

Nachverhandlungen von Public Private Partnerships – Analyse des Beitrags „Renegotiation of Concession Contracts. A Theoretical Approach“ von Guasch / Laffont / Straub (2006)

In über 41% der Konzessionen (den Telekommunikationssektor ausgeschlossen), die bei Infrastrukturprojekten in Latein- und Mittelamerika in den Jahren 1985 bis 2000 vergeben wurden, kam es zu Nachverhandlungen. Am stärksten betroffen waren die Transportbranche und der Sektor Wasserversorgung/Abwasserentsorgung mit 55% bzw. 75% Nachverhandlungen. Im Durchschnitt traten diese bereits zwei Jahre nach Vertragsunterzeichnung auf (vgl. Guasch, 2004, S. 34). Auch in Großbritannien wurden 33% der Public Private Partnership (PPP) Projekte zwischen 2004 und 2006 nachverhandelt (vgl. Iossa und Martimort, 2012, S. 445). Die vorliegende Arbeit beschäftigt sich mit dem Beitrag von Guasch et al. (2006), in dem mittels eines Regulierungsmodells die Einflussfaktoren auf die Wahrscheinlichkeit von Nachverhandlungen von Konzessionsverträgen untersucht werden. Die Autoren erweitern dabei die Arbeiten von Laffont und Tirole (1993) und Laffont (2003), um auf dieser Basis ein Modell von firmen-initiierten Nachverhandlungen zu entwickeln. Neben den oben genannten Zahlen liefert vor allem die Tatsache, dass PPP in den vergangenen Jahren und Jahrzehnten ein zu-nehmendes Wachstum verzeichneten, einen Anlass für eine solche Untersuchung. So stieg beispielsweise das Volumen der neu abgeschlossenen Verträge in der EU von 2000 bis 2008 um über 61% auf ca. 24,2 Mrd. Euro. Allein in 2008 wurden 115 neue Verträge unterzeichnet, wobei Großbritannien für die Jahre 1990 bis 2009 mit ca. 52% der Projektvolumina den mit Abstand größten Anteil daran hat. Deutschland folgt mit ca. 4% an vierter Stelle (vgl. Kappeler und Nemoz, 2010, S. 7–8). In Kapitel 2 dieser Seminararbeit folgt eine ausführliche Analyse der Methodik und der Vorgehensweise von Guasch et al. (2006) bei der Modellentwicklung, sowie eine Zusammenfassung der theoretischen Erkenntnisse aus dem Modell. Das dritte Kapitel fasst die Arbeit zusammen und liefert eine Diskussion des Lösungsansatzes sowie mögliche Implikationen für die Praxis.

Pre-contractual Obligations, Conclusion of Contract, Unfair Terms

The Acquis Group â?? also known as the European Research Group on Existing EC Private Law â?? pursues the objective of presenting, in a restated form known as the Acquis Principles, the large and sometimes incoherent patchwork of existing EC private law. These principles reflect the current state of EC law in a structure which allows for the identification of commonalities, contradictions, and gaps. They function as a tool for the better understanding and improvement of EC private law. They are also intended to ensure that the existing EC law is appropriately reflected in the broader Common Frame of Reference. The principles include a commentary outlining the Acquis foundations, as well as definitions of core legal terms and a glossary on terminology. Formulated with the Acquis Principles in mind, Contract I is the first of a new series. It covers the areas of general EC contract law which surround the formation of contracts, including key rules on pre-contractual duties, the conclusion of a contract, and its content.
