PPN 01/23: Requirements to publish on Contracts Finder


PPN 01/23: Requirements to publish on Contracts Finder – guidance has been issued for in-scope organisations to publish procurement information on Contracts Finder. The Public Contracts (Amendment) Regulations 2022 came into force on 21 Dec 2022. This makes the following changes to the Below Threshold Regime:

  • The contract value limits have been amended: from £25,000 to £30,000 for sub-central authorities.
  • NHS Foundation Trusts now have the same publication value thresholds as sub-central authorities, alongside NHS Trusts (i.e. £30,000 and above), and need only publish the minimum information required by the PCR 2015, and to the 90 day timescale.
  • All contracting authorities should also note that the contract value limits are to be calculated inclusive of VAT (this took effect from 1 Jan 2022)

The clarification that the regime is identical for NHS Foundation Trusts and for NHS Trusts is being seen as helpful by legal practioners.
