In anticipation of the release of the Procurement Bill, our specialist procurement team spoke through the new regime and the key changes that will take place after the transition period.

Topics covered included:

  • The core principles of procurement and the new look procurement procedures
  • Procuring the Most Advantageous Tender (MAT)
  • New look framework agreement and DPS provisions
  • Grounds for exclusion and the debarment list
  • Transparent and open contracting
  • Managing contract modifications

The speakers also provided details of the upcoming campaign Ready for Reform. This campaign will help you navigate the transition to the new UK public procurement rules, emphasising on the practical changes that will be required to your day to day working practices.
