Delivering public value: Government procurement rule changes

The Government’s 4th edition of its procurement rules sets out the standards of best practice and expectations for how procurement will be leveraged to achieve broader outcomes.

The procurement principles remain the same, but there are a few extra rules, a new Supplier Code of Conduct, some outdated rules have been removed and ‘public value’ has been signposted as the new overarching objective.
