How can you best prepare for a procurement challenge? Here are our top 10 tips.
Next year will see the biggest changes to public procurement law in more than a decade when the Procurement Bill 2022 passes into law.
Taking prompt advice is essential as unsuccessful bidders have just ten days within which to issue court proceedings if they want to benefit from the automatic suspension provided for in the Regulations, which prevents the contracting authority from awarding the contract to anyone else.
There is little more disheartening for a bid writer or other procurement specialist, after investing time and energy into preparing the best possible bid to win a public contract, than receiving a letter politely explaining that you have been unsuccessful on this occasion but hoping that you will, all the same, bid for future contracts when the opportunity arises.
Clarification questions are an integral part of any procurement process. Do not be afraid of submitting them – it is better to raise a question (even if it then means that your competitors get the benefit of the responses provided) than to make an incorrect assumption about what the contracting authority wants.
With major changes to public procurement on the horizon, this year’s annual update is more important than ever. Everyone working in public procurement will be affected.
