Details of EU directives and UK legislation impacting on public procurement

Procurement law is driven by European directives, which are implemented in NI through regulations, including the Public Contracts Regulations 2015.

The regulations apply to all public bodies which are largely owned, managed or financed through public funds. 

This includes government departments and their agencies, non-departmental public bodies, hospitals and health sector purchasers, housing associations, education boards and institutions, various non-government organisations and district councils.
