Brexit’s Effect on Procurement Directives


In a recent article published in Supply Management, a procurement lawyer has stated that it will be "business as usual" for procurement after Brexit. He believes that even if we exit the European Union it's doubtful that the first priority for the government will be to change or update procurement legislation. However, buyers should start to familiarise themselves with other regulatory environments including the World Trade Organisation agreements. Ultimately the names of certain things might change but the demand for consistency, transparency and non-discrimination will remain.

A recent survey was carried out where a total of 134 buyers across the UK were surveyed. According to the results around 58% of respondents said they would prefer to see procurement directives reformed rather than completely eliminated.
