No deal?


No deal?

September 13, 2018 3:49 PM | Posted by Beresford-Jones, Jenny | Print this page

The government has just published a tranche of papers outlining the potential impact of a “no deal” Brexit. One of the topic areas covers access to public contracts in the event that no deal is reached in time for 29 March 2019 (when Britain leaves the EU).

The paper is light on detail but there are a few points to note:

  • if there is no deal, contracts will no longer be advertised in the OJEU but instead a replacement UK-specific e-notification service will be made available free of charge to all users;
  • current procurement legislation (in particular, the Public Contracts Regulations 2015) will be amended accordingly;
  • the requirements to advertise on Contracts Finder will continue; and
  • further guidance will be issued as Brexit day draws closer.
