Public Procurement Bill - April 2023 update!

Written by

|

Oct 03, 2022

Following several months of negotiations, the Procurement Reform Bill has now been introduced in Parliament. Expected to go live in mid-2023, the bill now requires secondary legislation to bring certain elements and the wider plan into effect, after which it will also have to be granted Royal Assent. This Bill will reform the existing EU Procurement Rules, which, after Brexit, are no longer valid within the UK.

The Transforming Public Procurement programme aims to improve the regulation of public procurement in order to create a simpler and more flexible system for users. The changes created by this new bill will apply to the public sector as a whole; including central and local government and public sector organisations such as the NHS etc. These changes will be applied across England, Wales and Northern Ireland, however they will not affect Scotland, whose policies surrounding procurement legislation remain a devolved matter.

At around £300 billion, public procurement accounts for around a third of all public expenditure each year and is the largest area of public spending; thus a key area where getting the most for your money is critical. Value for money is a key driving factor for the changes to regulations, with new, more competitive, yet simplified procedures aimed at allowing government to spend more with SMEs.

Greater flexibility will allow buyers to have more opportunity to negotiate directly with suppliers by creating what is being called a “competitive flexible procedure”. This will ensure, for the first time, that contracting authorities can design a competition to best suit the particular needs of their contract and market. The Bill will enshrine into law the basic objectives of public procurement; delivering value for money, maximising public benefit and acting with integrity.

April 2023 updates

The Procurement Bill completed its passage through the Committee Stage in the House of Commons in February and will now progress to Report and then Third Reading. We are still awaiting a date for this next stage but anticipate this will be in May. You can view the Hansard records of the committee debates and the current version of the Bill (incorporating all amendments to date) here.

The final stage in the Bill’s Parliamentary journey is “consideration of amendments”, when it returns to the House of Lords. If the Lords disagrees with any Commons amendments, or makes alternative proposals, then the Bill is sent back to the Commons. The Bill might go back and forth between each House until both Houses reach agreement on the exact wording – this is known as ‘ping pong'. Soon after the Bill achieves Royal Assent - which we expect to be later this spring - work to finalise the secondary legislation (Statutory Instruments, or regulations) will take centre stage and will include a public consultation on the draft regulations.

We continue to engage with eProcurement systems providers to assist them to make the changes needed to support the new noticing regime. We recently shared further information on the content of the first batch of new notices that will soon be released to a test environment.

These are as follows:

  • Planned procurement notice - this will be used for above threshold procurements, giving suppliers advance notice of an upcoming procurement opportunity. If published between 40 days and a year ahead of the tender notice, this notice allows the contracting authority to reduce the tendering period (the length of time that suppliers have to submit tenders after the publication of the tender notice) from 25 days to 10 days. This is the equivalent of the current Prior Information Notice for reducing time limits.

  • Tender notice - this notice advertises a competitive contract opportunity, giving suppliers information on what is being procured and the value, to enable them to decide whether to submit a tender. For below threshold procurement opportunities, there is a simplified Tender notice with a reduced set of fields. This is equivalent to the current Contract notice in Find a Tender and the Opportunity notice on Contracts Finder.

  • Transparency notice - this notice advises the market that an above threshold direct award will be made, and what the justification is for that. This is equivalent to the current Voluntary Ex-Ante Transparency notice (VEAT).

  • Contract award notice - this notice must be published after the decision has been made to award an above threshold contract but that contract has not yet been signed. This notice begins the standstill period, if it applies, during which any challenges to the award can be made. There is no current equivalent.
Expected Regulation Changes

Whilst the Procurement Reform Bill has not yet been formally passed through Parliament, there are several areas where changes to procurement can be expected.

Transparency remains a key focus within this new Bill, with a single, central platform for all procurement information being a new initiative. This aims to ensure access for all and strengthen the new Procurement Review Unit’s ability to investigate concerns surrounding both transparency and contract awards. Featuring information for all tenders, including pipeline opportunities and spend, this single system will also have a dedicated area of the publication of Supplier performance, meaning that this could impact supplier references moving forward.

Terminology changes are also expected, with “Contract Notices” now being advertised as “Tender Notices”, and new notice types to cover the full life cycle of a contract. The Bill will also include provisions to exclude suppliers from defence and security tenders, should they be deemed to present a risk to national security.

Direct Awards of contracts could be possible, if seen to be “in the public interest” – however this may be a section of the Bill that faces some scrutiny.

The Procurement Reform Bill, whilst looking to overhaul public sector procurement, will still maintain compliance with international obligations, including the Agreement on Government Procurement from the World Trade Organisation, which guarantees British businesses access to £1.3 trillion in public sector procurement opportunities oversees.

How Could These Changes Affect Your Business?

At a glance, there are likely to be several changes which could become apparent to businesses once this Bill is formally accepted and written into law. Primarily, the overall look and feel of the tenders themselves could change somewhat, however, from the information available, it looks like many of the questions will remain the same.

Perhaps, most conveniently, there will now be a single registration service for supplier, a “one stop shop”, operating on a “tell us once” style system to avoid unnecessary administrative headaches with multiple portal spaces.

Maintaining quality of works will become an even greater focus, as it may now become much easier for contracting authorities to reject bids from suppliers who pose risks through threats such as poor previous performance. These incidents will become much more easily accessible for potential buyers to view, thus the need to provide exceptional service and value for money is even more critical.

The way businesses are alerted to upcoming tenders is likely to change too, with external platforms no longer being the space where contract notices are hosted. This may however provide the benefit of ease, with all opportunities being advertised in a single space for public sector procurement.

Buyers requesting the Most Economically Advantageous Tender (MEAT) will remain, however a renewed emphasis may be places on Most Advantageous Tenders (MATs) too, meaning buyers can set their priorities to other areas, such as innovation, when assessing a tender.

The Countryside Trust has been awarded funding through NatureScot’s Nature Recovery Fund to deliver the initial delivery phase of Wild Strathfillan. The Trust is working in partnership with land managers, local communities, environmental NGOs, businesses and the Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park Authority to deliver this long-term project.Wetland habitat restoration at the Colin Burt Reserve has been identified as one of several key nature restoration initiatives that will be delivered across the Strathfillan landscape over the next two years. The reserve is 16.5 hectares in area, with wetland habitat covering 9.5 hectares. Attempts to drain the wetland habitat for cattle and sheep grazing have been made in the past, but unsuccessfully. After the purchase in 2005, it has been unmanaged and is now dominated by Deschampsia cespitosa (Tufted hairgrass).The site is situated on the floodplain of the River Dochart, and in addition to wetland habitat, the site includes a conifer plantation, grassland habitat, and areas of recent native woodland planting. The site floods extensively every winter, completely submerging the wetland habitat, right up to the conifer plantation. With sensitive management, we aim to reduce the grass cover, and increase botanical species diversity. We would like to do this by introducing some wetland features to increase habitat heterogeneity. This includes creating scrapes and ponds, as well as maintaining and increasing the existing botanically rich ditches that currently support Beaver on the site.

Wild Strathfillan – Rhododendron Removal at Bull Park Wood, Auchlyne Estate
UK Balloch Loch Lomond & The Trossachs Countryside Trust

LLTCT has been awarded funding through NatureScot’s Nature Recovery Fund to deliver the initial delivery phase of Wild Strathfillan. LLTCT is working in partnership with land managers, local communities, environmental NGOs, businesses and the Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park Authority to deliver this long-term project.Removal of invasive non-native Rhododendron ponticum forms part of the suite of nature restoration initiatives that will be delivered across the landscape. Rhododendron ponticum has been identified at Bull Park Wood in the Auchlyne Estate. This woodland is just over 6ha in area, and the Rhododendron covers less than 10% of this area, mainly as scattered shrubs, circa 1 meter to 1.5 metres tall.Site Location:Auchlyne Estate is situated within Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park. It lies to the north of park, off the A85 between Crianlarich and Killin. The woodland is located due east of Auchlyne farm buildings, and north of the River Dochart. The location of the woodland compartment is shown on the map below (blue-outlined polygon). There are two gates enabling vehicular access to the woodland compartment across a sheep field. A vehicular access track runs through some of the site, though most Rhododendron flanks the burn and is growing amongst fairly dense circa 20-year-old native broadleaf tree growth. If a site visit is required, please get in touch and we will provide you with the location for access.Services Required;We require Rhododendron ponticum to be removed from the woodland using small, preferably tracked, machinery, or by hand using a chainsaw. All Rhododendron ponticum growth roughly 1 metre high by 0.5 metres wide and larger will be removed by the contractor as part of this contract. Smaller plants will be removed by hand at a later date although the contractor should record a GPS or what-three-words location for shrubs identified that were not removed during these works. All Rhododendron that has been removed by the contractor needs to be left in tidy piles on site away from watercourses. After works are completed, we expect the site to be left tidy and any impacts from accessing the site to be made good, including access route to and from the site through the sheep field. The woodland consists of native trees, and so felling and removal of any trees for access should be avoided as far as possible.A site visit will be required prior to submitting a bid for this work to ensure accurate costings are submitted and equipment requirements are identified. Access requirements should be considered, including minimising impact on surrounding environment (e.g. avoiding the felling of native trees).

Smart Infrastructure Pilot Programme
UK Irvine North Ayrshire Council

In a landmark initiative set to propel North Ayrshire into the future of digital infrastructure, North Ayrshire Council (“NAC”) has embarked on a Smart Infrastructure Pilot Programme (“SIPP”). This pioneering project is driven by a grant of approximately GBP 242K from the Department for Science Innovation and Technology (“DSIT”) as part of a 'Smart Infrastructure' Pilot. The grant will support the rollout of innovative PAS 191:2023 capable innovative smart multi-purpose poles that will redefine NAC’s urban landscape. NAC will supplement the grant by 20K for operation and maintenance, taking the overall project value to GBP 262,765.The SIPP is a pivotal component of DSITs Advanced Wireless Innovation Strategy. The strategy aims to be a catalyst for economic growth, connectivity enhancement, and the promotion of sustainable practices. This strategic investment will enable the procurement of state-of-the-art multi-purpose poles, in place of traditional single-use street furniture for a more versatile and sustainable infrastructure that supports a multiple use case ecosystem.Central to this endeavour is the Maritime Mile, the route from the Irvine train station to Irvine Beach Park, where the aim is to transform the area into a national waterfront destination. The Maritime Mile is one component of the ‘Great Harbour’ – a transformation of the waterfront in Irvine, North Ayrshire. The Great Harbour is a key component of the GBP 251m Ayrshire Growth Deal and is one of the most ambitious and transformational regeneration tourism proposals for the region. This significant investment is intended to regenerate the waterfront, turning it into a hub of transformational tourism and an exemplar of modern Smart Connected Places.Structured around key use cases such as CCTV/security, movement detection, waste detection, and the enhancement of visitor and business connectivity, the project is also poised to consider the integration of EV charging points and augmented reality experiences in the future. NAC’s forward-thinking approach paints a future where the power of advanced wireless connectivity smartens public services and puts Smart Connected Places at the core of urban development.
