Cabinet Office guidance on outcome of Brexit for public sector procurement from 1 January 2021

On 10 November 2020, the Cabinet Office published guidance on public sector procurement from 1 January 2021.  It provides:

  • contracting authorities are advised that they will need to publish public procurement notices through “Find a Tender” which will go live on 1 January 2021 and will replace the requirement to publish notices in the Official Journal of the European Union;
  • if contracting authorities use a third party eSender to manage procurement notices, they will be able to continue to use it, provided it has confirmed that it can publish notices to Find a Tender; and
  • if contracting authorities do not use an eSender, or intend to publish notices directly to Find a Tender, they will need to register with the service; this can be done by creating a buyer's account on Contracts Finder; all Contracts Finder accounts will automatically be given access to publish notices on Find a Tender.
