Public Contract Regulations 2015 published

6 February 2015

With a burst of excitement following the response to the consultation on the UK’s Transposition of new EU Procurement Directives issued by the Cabinet Office last week the final draft of the new regulations were laid before parliament yesterday. For the most part these come in to force on 26th February 2015 which is much earlier than many had thought. A full article on these new regulations will be in this month’s Public Sector Matters. In the meant time the draft can be found here.
