The Procurement Act: what new notices will you need to publish?

The Procurement Act is set to bring some major changes to how your contracting authority conducts procurement.

In a bid to bolster transparency and accountability in public procurement, the Act requires you to publish a number of new notice types throughout your procurement processes.

These range from Planned Procurement Notices and Transparency Notices pre-contract, to Contract Change Notices and Contract Termination Notices towards a contract's conclusions.

To help your team prepare, we've produced a flowchart showing you all the new notices being introduced through the Act, and where they fit into the procurement lifecycle.

Note: this Flowchart was produced in July 2023, before the Procurement Act was enacted into law. Some details may have changed.
