Welsh Government issues procurement policy note on publishing information about awards over low value thresholds

The Welsh Government has published a new procurement policy note setting out its commitment to publish information about awards over certain low value thresholds on Sell2Wales (S2W) and to promote this approach as best practice to Welsh Public Sector bodies.

The Welsh Procurement Policy Note (WPPN) 02/22: Transparency – Publication of Contract Award has been issued to support changes that are being introduced within the Welsh Public Sector to enable Welsh contracting authorities to meet upcoming transparency requirements.

The Welsh Government said: “In addition to meeting these transparency requirements, this guidance will also support the introduction of the Open Contracting Data Standard (OCDS) throughout the procurement lifecycle. This is consistent with the Welsh government’s decision to align itself with the UK government’s Green Paper: Transforming public procurement.”
