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.
