The government is currently preparing for Brexit and is expecting “to negotiate a successful deal with the EU”. Nevertheless, they have published guidance on how to access tender opportunities if there is no Brexit deal and the UK leaves the EU on 29 March 2019 with no transition period.
These guidelines are among a series of ‘technical notes’ released to help British citizens and businesses understand the possible implications of a no-deal Brexit.
OJEU Tender opportunities
With the outcome of Brexit still unknown for businesses, it is still unclear what access the UK will have the OJEU/TED. The UK will remain an EU member until 29 March 2019. Therefore, all procurement opportunities that fall above the thresholds will still be advertised on the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU) until that date.
No matter whether there is or is not a Brexit deal, much of public sector procurement will remain unchanged as the Public Contracts Regulations 2015 are already part of UK law and will continue to govern public sector procurement for the foreseeable future.
