How the UK Procurement Bill aims to strengthen Transparency in Supply Chains
In this short course, we will look at how greater scrutiny is proposed of bidders' subcontractors and the social value and environmental credentials of tenders.
Transparency has long been a watchword of UK procurement law. The government has clearly signalled its intention that the new Procurement Bill, which is currently before Parliament, will enhance and extend transparency obligations. Many of these requirements relate to how a procurement is run, but the bill includes additional transparency points in other areas, including greater scrutiny of the supply chain behind a bidder.
By the end of this course, you should be able to:
- Understand the importance of social value and sustainability in tender evaluations
- Identify the importance of engaging with subcontractors on opportunities to collaborate to deliver outcomes in these areas
