Public Contracts Regulations 2015: A Guide to the Implications and Opportunities for Social Enterprises

On the 26th February 2015 new laws came into force – the Public Contracts Regulations 2015 (PCR 2015) – intended to streamline public procurement and make it more open to small and medium enterprises, social enterprises and third sector providers.

So if you have heard about the new PCR 2015 legislation but haven’t yet had a chance to work out its implications you’ll be pleased to know that our good friends at Anthony Collins Solicitors LLP have kindly produced a guidance note on PCR 2015 for us all.

It is is intended for social enterprises that want to better understand PCR 2015, and in particular want to know how this legislation, along with the Public Services (Social Value) Act 2012, may help them maximise the opportunities offered by public sector contracting.
