Judgment No. 4623
The complaint is dismissed.
The complainant challenges the lawfulness of a selection procedure and seeks its cancellation.
selection procedure; complaint dismissed
The basic principles are well settled in the Tribunal’s case law, where a decision such as this is challenged, as explained in Judgment 3652, consideration 7 […].
A complainant is required to demonstrate that there was a serious defect in the selection process which impacted on the consideration and assessment of her or his candidacy. It is not enough simply to assert that one is better qualified than the selected candidate (see Judgment 3669, consideration 4).
However, when an organisation conducts a competition to fill a post, the process must accord with the relevant rules and the case law (see Judgment 1549, considerations 11 and 13, and the case law cited therein).
