Demystifying Teckal

Those procurement practitioners who have had to consider whether a contract is exempt from competition under the Regulations on the basis that it is an in house contract will know that the rules in this area have been - at best - somewhat opaque.

The Commission has come to the rescue with a working paper on public-public cooperation. The paper is intended as a summary of the existing position rather than to create new law but is a surprisingly readable summary of this complex area and gives a clear statement of the principles.

For authorities needing to consider whether a contract might be Teckal exempt the paper is a good place to start.
