New Thresholds from 1 January 2016

These new thresholds for the application of the various public procurement regimes come into force on 1 January 2016.

 Supply and services contracts (central government)  £135,000/£106,047
 Supply and services contracts
(sub-central government)
 Works contracts (central and sub-central)  £5,225,000/£4,104,394

The threshold for public concession contracts under the new Concessions Directive is now £5,225,000/£4,104,394. Note however that this Directive has not yet been implemented in the UK (although the draft Concession Contracts Regulations 2016 have been published and are due to come into force on 18 April 2016).

The light touch threshold for public service contracts for social and other specific services has not been amended in Euros but the Commission's conversion into other currencies means that the value in £GBP drops (the threshold £750,000/£589,148 under the Public Contracts Regulations 2015).
