The Government continues to prepare the ground for the regulation of public procurement after the Brexit transition period expires on 31 December 2020. On 19 November it enacted the Public Procurement (Amendment etc.) (EU Exit) Regulations 2020, which amend the existing UK procurement regulations in order to reflect the fact that the UK will no longer be bound by EU law from 1 January 2021. Read our Competition Notes item here on the impact of these Regulations and also the Government’s planned Procurement White Paper.
Our booklet on procurement disputes can be found here: Procurement Disputes Booklet – August 2020, which collates a number of significant cases from recent years in order to provide an overview of the current procurement regime for running evaluation processes and the issues which arise in High Court litigation when procurement processes are challenged.
