Defence Procurement's "Big Bang" is Only Months Away

The Ministry of Defence ("the MOD") recently published a second consultation on the implementation of the EU's Directive on the coordination of procedures for the award of certain works contracts, supply contracts and services by contracting entities in the field of defence ("the Defence Directive"). All the signs now indicate that the UK will be ready to implement the Defence Directive, in full, before the deadline of 20 August 2011. The MOD's consultation seeks input on a small number of "open" issues relating to sub-contracting requirements, notification of potential claims, the MOD's impact assessment, etc. Interested parties have until 7 March 2011 to file their comments.
