Procurement – Responding to COVID-19


Yesterday the Cabinet Office published a Procurement Policy Note with information and guidance on the public procurement regulations and responding to the current coronavirus outbreak.

The PPN applies to all contracting authorities including schools, academies and colleges and provides useful information if you find yourself needing to procure goods, services or works with extreme urgency due to the impact of COVID-19.

The guidance covers the circumstances in which you may enter into contracts without competing or advertising, using accelerated timescales in procurement procedures and extending or modifying a contract.

If you have any queries about this guidance please contact your CPC Regional Procurement Advisor.
