The Public Contracts Regulations 2015 are now in force for all procurements commenced on or after today. Procurements commenced before today will continue to be regulated by the Public Contracts Regulations 2006. Broadly speaking, a procurement will be “commenced” for these purposes on the date that the advertisement is sent to the OJEU.

We have been busy updating the Procurement Portal in the last couple of weeks and today we're able to share some helpful new content:

You could also call or email our Procurement Portal helpline with any queries you may have around the new regulations and how they apply to your organisation.
