Understanding the Public Contract Regulations 2015

New Public Contract Regulations came into effect on 25 February 2015. 

The new rules are aimed at modernising public procurement. If you are a CPD customer and you are commissioning supplies, services or a construction project above the EU threshold, then these changes may benefit you.

As a CPD customer, it may be helpful for you to read a summary of the changes.
