What will EU Directives mean for Construction Procurement in Wales – Cardiff
On 25 July 2013 the Cabinet Office published a Procurement Policy Note (PPN) in which they confirmed that a package of 3 procurement directives had been provisionally agreed: a public sector directive, a utilities sector directive and a new directive regarding procedural rules for the award of concession contracts. On the 5th September 2013 the Internal Market Committee voted to adopt the proposed new directives. The final European Parliament vote on the matter is scheduled for November 2013. Progress indeed!
Following these formalities, member states have two years within which to transpose the directives and the PPN notes that it is the intention of Government to facilitate early transposition to enable contracting entities to take advantage of the flexibility of the new rules. Further consultations are to take place on the implementing regulations at which time further PPN’s will be issued.
Simon McCann, Partner, Morgan Cole will guide you through the implications for construction at our breakfast event in Llandudno on the 4th December and Cardiff on the 16th January.
