Steve Barclay – 2021 Comments on Government Procurement Rules

The comments made by Steve Barclay, the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, on 6 December 2021.

Leaving the EU gives us the perfect chance to make our own rules for how the government’s purchasing power can be used to promote strong values.

While doing so we’re increasing transparency and ensuring that procurement remains fair and open.

These simpler and more flexible rules will also make it easier for small businesses to win work – placing levelling up at its heart.
