Amongst the announcements in the 2021 Queen’s Speech is that a new Procurement Bill is to be introduced in the next session of the UK Parliament. That bill builds upon the consultation in the Green Paper on procurement reform which closed in March 2021.
Shoosmiths’ specialist procurement team were amongst the organisations who prepared detailed submissions in relation to these reforms drawing on our industry experience in advising suppliers to the public sector and purchasing authorities. Our submission and summary can be found in the attached link, as well as contact details for our procurement team.
