The European Commission has published new EU threshold values that will apply to all EU-regulated public procurements with effect from 1 January 2018.

The main thresholds are set out in the table below, all thresholds having risen moderately due to fluctuations in exchange rates over the previous two years.

These revised thresholds only apply to EU-regulated procurements. There has been no change to the below EU-threshold regimes that apply both in Scotland (under the Procurement Reform (Scotland) Act 2014 provisions) or in England, Wales and Northern Ireland under Part 4 of the Public Contracts Regulations 2015.

The Crown Commercial Service and Scottish Government have published policy notes setting out the detail of the changes: PPN 04/17; and SPPN 5/2017.
