20 March 2014 #Public Sector
The Cabinet Office has published an update confirming that the 2014 EU procurement directives (which were approved by the EU Council on 11 February 2014) will be published in the Official Journal on 28 March 2014 and will come into force on 17 April 2014. Member states will then have two years to transpose the Directives into national legislation.
The Cabinet Office has given a clear steer that the Government intends to implement the Directives quickly in order for the UK to benefit from the provisions and new flexibilities as soon as possible.
We intend to publish full article summarising the new provisions of the Directives early next week. We will also be providing training on the new Directives and the corresponding UK legislation at a later date. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to receive a copy of the full article or to register your interest in attending the training.
