What will happen to public procurement in 2021? In terms of public sector tendering, not a lot. In terms of managing your supply chains, the impact will be huge!
The governments legal department will draft the new UK procurement legislation, the principles of transparency and fair treatment will remain. The Cabinet Office's Commercial Department will be consulted and asked to input into the procurement legislation drafts. This process will take time, therefore the existing procurement legislation may remain in place for many years to come.
If you're hoping for a radical change in procurement law and tendering processes in 2021, a move to simple bid proposals and beauty parades, you may be disappointed.
The requirement to compete in a sealed bid tender process and prove value for money, will always be required for public sector contracts. British bids from British companies will be evaluated alongside EU company bids, as they are today.
