Public procurement legislation

Regulations with which we must comply when we carry out any procurement of goods, services or works.

There are European, national and local regulations with which we must comply when we carry out any procurement of goods, services or works.

These regulations are designed for ensuring fair open and transparent conditions of competition for all potential suppliers. Above certain thresholds of value we must advertise our requirements in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU).

EU procurement thresholds applicable from 1 January 2016 to 1 January 2018

Thresholds are net of VAT and are total contract value.

  Supplies and service contracts Works Light touch Regime (Annex XIV of the Procurement Regulations
Other public sector contracting authorities including local authorities £164,176 £4,104,394 £589,148

 

At levels below these thresholds we have our own Contract Procedure Rules governing procurement of goods, services and works. The Contract Procedure Rules form part of our Constitution (Part 8.3).
