The new Public Contracts Regulations 2015 (the "Regulations") were laid before Parliament yesterday and most of the provisions will come into force on Thursday 26 February 2015.
Only procurements commenced (e.g. advertised) on or after this date will be subject to these new Regulations so anything that authorities want to be subject to the current procurement regime should be commenced in the next couple of weeks.
