The Procurement Bill is a proposed legislation that aims to reform the way public authorities in the UK buy goods, services and public works. 
What is changing? 
The way that the University of Plymouth undertakes procurement is influenced by certain obligations set out in National Procurement Legislation. 
Current legislation is going through a reform process which will see a new Procurement Bill bring about changes to the existing procurement rules. 
It is anticipated that changes will come into effect in October 2024 following a six-month mobilisation period.
To help suppliers get ready for go-live, this webpage has been created to share updates on the changes and how they are being implemented by the University of Plymouth.
We would also encourage interested parties to sign up for regular updates.
