ThinkHouse - Public Sector series - The Procurement Act 2023: A brief update

31 minute read
23 November 2023


On 26 October 2023, the Procurement Act 2023 (formerly the Procurement Bill) received Royal Assent, and is therefore now on the statute book. Despite the Act not being expected to come into force until October 2024, it will represent a radical overhaul of the public procurement regime in all of the UK except Scotland. Many of the Act's provisions mark a significant departure from the current public procurement regime, and some completely new rules will be introduced.

In this webinar, Christopher Brennan gives a short introduction to the Act's key features - explaining in a nutshell how procurement law will change once the Act comes into force. Chris also covers the expected timetable for bringing the Act into force, and outlines how procurers and suppliers will be able to familiarise themselves with more detail about the Act during the run-up to that date.
