National Procurement Policy Statement and Procurement Policy Note 06/21

Cabinet Office published PPN 06/21 in June 2021 which indicated legislative requirements would be introduced in April 2022 to require all contracting authorities to have regard to the statement, publish pipelines and benchmark their organisations. This legislation will not now come into force this year, however will likely form a part of the Procurement Bill. The principles behind the NPPS and associated requirements were to prepare contracting authorities for upcoming change, therefore it is strongly recommended that contracting authorities continue to have regard to the NPPS and consider publishing pipelines.
