star this property answer text <p>UK public procurement policy is to award contracts on the basis of value for money, which means the optimal combination of cost and quality over the lifetime of the project. Public sector procurers are required to assess value for money from the perspective of the contracting authority, using criteria linked to the subject matter of the contract, including compliance with the published specification</p><p><br>Decisions on whether to outsource any particular service are made on a case by case basis according to Treasury guidance and the Outsourcing Playbook.

star this property answer text <p>The overarching principle in all public sector procurement is to secure the best value for money for the taxpayer. To this end, we have simplified procurement processes, and we are implementing a range of measures, such as taking account of social value when awarding contracts. From September, if government contractors are late with supplier payments, they could be prevented from winning public contracts. These measures help to deliver value for money for taxpayers through better procurement, and support a healthy, competitive and diverse market.</p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this

Article 67 of Directive 2014/24/EU sets out the definition of MEAT. Within this framework, individual contracting authorities are free to set out their detailed award criteria on a contract-by-contract basis, taking account of the specificities of the particular procurement in question.</p> more like this
