Transforming public procurement: Green Paper on reforms to public procurement law after Brexit
The Cabinet Office has published its consultation paper for reforms to public procurement law for a post-Brexit Britain, outlining what promises to be the most radical changes to public procurement in a generation.
The Green Paper, titled Transforming Public Procurement, sets out reforms that the Government promises will "speed up and simplify" government’s procurement processes, "place value for money at their heart" and "unleash opportunities for small business, charities and social enterprises to innovate in public service delivery".
The reforms are intended to redefine public procurement law following the UK's withdrawal from the European Union, building on the Government's commitment to the World Trade Organisation Agreement on Government Procurement.
Responses to the 42 questions raised in the consultation are invited and should be submitted to the Cabinet Office by 10 March 2021.
