Procurement Act 2023 guidance documents

To support the preparation for the Act, the Cabinet Office has published a suite of guidance documents that address all aspects of the new regime. The documents will provide technical guidance and help with interpretation and understanding.

The guidance documents cover a broad range of subjects from procurement through to pre-market engagement, award rules, exclusion, and contract modification. 

The documents will vary in length, but each will typically cover:

  • legal framework
  • what has changed
  • key points and policy intent
  • linked notices or guidance, where relevant (hyperlinks to related guidance will be added once all documents are published)
  • where to find further information (hyperlinks will be added once all documents are published)
