Public Procurement framework

Back to Common Frameworks

The Public Procurement framework is a non-legislative framework to ensure continued co-operation between the government and devolved administrations in relation to public procurement.

The provisional Common Framework for public procurement sets out proposed 4-nation ways of working for domestic and international public procurement policy and legislation. It is intended to guide the actions of policy officials of all 4 nations as they develop policies on public procurement.

The framework has been jointly developed by the UK Government and devolved administrations.
