Procurement Health Check

All public bodies in England, Wales and Northern Ireland must comply with the Public Contracts Regulations 2015 under new EU legislation.

The directive states that:

  • Contracts over the value of £25,000 are required to be published through the Government’s Contract Finder website.
  • Contracts over the value of €200,000 (benchmarked against the pound every two years) will need to be published through the Official Journal of the EU (OJEU).
  • Suppliers are now able to self-declare in the pre-qualification stage, with only the successful bidder tested for capacity and strength.
  • The directives have also put a spotlight on conflicts of interest and have made it harder to exclude previous, poor preforming contractors from the bidding process.

As part of our procurement health check we will carry out a desktop exercise to provide you with an overview of procurement compliance within your organisation.  in addition, the review can include a review of your procurement processes, procurement strategy and tendering procedures.

A Procurement Health Check Report is presented to you, with a RAG rating for each of the key areas.  The report, including desktop analysis, usually takes no more than two weeks from initial commissioning.
