Which Regulations apply?

The Public Contracts Regulations 2015 apply to all procurement procedures commenced on or after 26 February 2015. Broadly speaking, the date that the procurement is first advertised will be the date that it is “commenced” for these purposes. For more detail, please see new regulation 118.
