The Public Contracts (Amendment) Regulations 2009 were published on the OPSI website on 12 November 2009. The Regulations, which implement the new public procurement Remedies Directive (Directive 2007/66), came into force on 20 December 2009. Bidders will now have considerably improved remedies where the Public Contract regulations have been breached. To read the Regulations, go to http://www.opsi.gov.uk/si/si2009/uksi_20092992_en_1
