Now that the Procurement Act finally received its Royal Assent, the starting gun has been fired on the most wide-ranging set of reforms to social housing procurement in decades. With the changes to be fully implemented through upcoming secondary legislation, a new procurement regime will be introduced that demands a fresh understanding of terminology and procedures.
From the many conversations that we have had with our clients across the sector, it’s fair to say that the reaction has been mixed.
On the one hand, as with any change, there is a considerable administrative burden in adopting and adapting to a daunting new landscape of jargon, acronyms and regulations. There is no doubt that the array of new requirements will increase the workload in some areas, and some teams will fear that they’ll be required to spend disproportionate time publishing information about covered procurement to ensure compliance.
