26-09-2022

Welcome to our new Procurement podcast series where the Chambers UK Band 1 listed procurement team at Eversheds Sutherland explore the UK Procurement Bill as it progresses through Parliament.

Throughout the series, we explore what the changes will mean in practice for both the public and private sectors and take a closer look at the principles and objectives of the Bill. In each episode we will tackle a different topic, focusing on key Procurement areas businesses will need to consider including: competitive procedures, direct awards, selection, exclusion and debarment, commercial tools, conflicts of interest, contract management, modifications and procurement challenges.

In light of the UK Government’s ‘Transforming Public Procurement’ consultation response, we will also keep an eye on the reform agenda which we expect to be implemented from 2023 onwards, and discuss what might change and what to expect as we start to deviate from the current rules.

Episode 1: Parliamentary process (update and overview)

In the first episode of our podcast series, Legal Director Chris Murray and Legal Director Nicolette Sanders give an overview of the parliamentary process, discuss what stage the Procurement Bill is at including the amendments to the legislation, and what we can expect at the next stage.

Disclaimer: This episode was recorded before the death of HM The Queen. Some of the dates referred to in the episode will change in light of the period of national mourning.
