Changes to UK Public Procurement. Billed as the biggest changes to the UK public procurement legislation in decades, the Procurement Act 2023 and resultant Procurement Regulations 2024 introduce new concepts, more flexibility, but with that greater transparency. This event will highlight the key changes and the impact these will have on UK public procurement in the future.
