OJEU After No Deal Brexit

If the UK leaves the EU without a deal, the public procurement regulations will remain broadly unchanged after Brexit.

The Cabinet Office laid a draft Statutory Instrument (SI) before both Houses of Parliament in December 2018. The SI was made in March 2019.

  1. UK law (not EU law) requires tenders over £10,000 GBP to be published domestically withing the UK. This much lower than the OJEU Threshold required by EU law. These notices are already included in our database (for more details see our article on low value tenders).

  2. Tenders from the EU publications office will still be accessible by our services. Being outside of the EU does not mean we will no longer have access to this source of information.

What happens if the UK gets a deal?

The UK government has stated no changes will take effect until the end of 2020 to assist businesses with any changes. This deadline will most likely be extended.

Will future changes effect our ability to source tenders?

Suppliers wishing to access UK contract opportunities from the UK public sector will still be able to access UK tenders. Brexit will have no effect on the services we provide.
