public matters newsletter - October 2014

22 October 2014

In this month we have a number of excellent articles which I am sure you will want to dive in to.

  • Lynne Rathbone looks at the NAOs report into contract management in central government which has some very useful recommendations. 
  • Nichola Evans takes an in depth look at Northrop v BAE Systems which confirms that it is evermore incumbent upon disputing parties to mediate before getting to court. 
  • Angelica Gavin reviews Wilmott Dixon Partnership Limited v London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham and the unsuccessful challenge that Wilmott Dixon brought against the council. 
  • Anja Beriro compares the approach of the courts in two automatic suspension cases under the Public Contracts Regulations 2006, and I round up with a brief review of the consultation on the new public contracts regulations.
