New, Quicker and Easier Public ProcurementJuly 3, 2021
To help to make public procurement processes quicker, easier plans to reform the UK’s them were announced in the Queen’s Speech in May 2021.
A single uniform framework will replace over 350 separate regulations to encourage greater public-private sector partnerships.
The plan is that more modern, simple and streamlined procedures which are fairer and more flexible will be used to move away from complex laws, especially in the context of the post-Brexit economy.
Since EU public procurement procedures no longer apply, the UK is taking the opportunity to develop in its own way and the Government plans to publish a National Procurement Policy Statement to set our both strategic and national priorities in public procurement.
