Government Guidelines on Public Procurement in the event of a No Deal Brexit

The future direction of public procurement is still unclear at this time.  The Government issued some guidelines in September 2018 in terms of what might happen if there was no deal in place when the UK leaves the EU. 

If the UK leaves the EU in March 2019 with no deal in place regarding future arrangements on access to OJEU/TED, a replacement UK-specific e-notification service will be made available. Changes to the procurement rules will be made via amendments to existing legislation, to ensure continued operability.

All contract opportunities that would currently be published on OJEU/TED would be published on the new UK e-notification service. This would be in line with the current requirements to send notices to the EU Publications Office for publication on OJEU/TED. Publication would take place electronically and the service will be free for all users.
