Recap of procurement policy in 2020


Share

In a year where procurement policy has been shaped, amongst other things, by the reaction to the Covid-19 pandemic and by the preparation for a post-Brexit transition, we have seen a flurry of Procurement Policy Notes (PPNs) issued by the Cabinet Office (and the rumour mill suggests we can expect more before the end of the year!).

Ahead of the publication of the Green Paper on Procurement Reform which we are now expecting next week, we thought it would be useful to collate the PPNs that have been issued so far over the course of 2020 and we have set out a high level summary of the key issues covered by each of the PPNs here.

The scope of the PPNs varies but, as always, even where an organisation is not explicitly within the scope of a PPN (for example, the PPNs dealing solely with central government contracts) the PPNs represent the current policy thinking of the Government and can give an insight into best practice for all contracting authorities.
