New Public Contracts Regulations To Change Procurement Rules From 26 February

The Public Contracts Regulations 2015 have been approved by Parliament and will take effect on 26 February 2015, in just over a fortnight. What does this mean for public bodies placing contracts and what should they do?

The New Regulations will generally apply to procurements started after they come into effect so processes started under the current 2006 Regulations can be run to completion under those rules.

The new Regulations make changes to thresholds, how to deal with smaller procuremrnts and significant elements of how to set up and award public contracts for works and services.

With the wording of the new Regulations now set and the implementation date announced we will be liaising with our public sector clients to assist them in adjusting to the new rules and taking the iopportunities that the new procurement regime can offer. We will also be publishing some guidance notes and offering training sessions for clients on the new Regulations as they take effect and new best practice is established.

For more on the new Regulations and information about available training contact Daniel Milnes at Forbes.
