Updated Guidance for Schools - Buying Procedures and Procurement Law

on Friday, 05 July 2019.

The Department for Education has published updated online guidance concerning buying procedures and procurement law for schools.

Navigating your way around the procurement rules can be complex, so the guidance provides useful information for schools and aims to help you achieve value for money and ensure compliance with EU procurement law.

The guidance is split into a number of smaller guides, each focusing on a different aspect of the procurement process, including:

  • the issues schools should be considering prior to commencing the buying process;
  • how schools might choose to buy goods and services;
  • what information to include in a specification;
  • how to run a mini-competition;
  • how to write and manage contracts; and
  • how schools may avoid fraud and what to do if they suspect it.

A full copy of the guide can be found on the Gov.uk website.
