We are planning a number of pilot projects to support sustainable development and procurement as part of the campaign in the run up to the introduction of the Procurement Act 2023, currently timetabled for October 2024. 

We are planning research into current existing procurement practice with commissioning authorities, due to take place in early 2024 with results anticipated in Spring 2024. 

We are currently preparing a guide to the Procurement Act 2023 which will focus on how comissioning authorities can promote community public good within the context of the new Act. This is due to be published in February 2024. 

We are updating our guide to Good Procurement Guide, to take account of new developments in the field due to be published in March 2024.
