The first edition of this book was the first fully comprehensive analysis of the legal regulation of procurement in the United Kingdom, covering purchasing by public bodies as well as by the privatised water, energy, transport and telecommunications utilities. It quickly became 'the bible' of procurement agreements.

The introduction of the best value regime in place of compulsory competitive tendering has resulted in significant changes to the procurement process, and the work has now been brought up-to-date to reflect these major developments.

  • The key text in this area revised in the light of major legislation
  • Provides a detailed examination of the law, illustrated by practical examples, including an in-depth focus on ""grey"" areas
  • Extensively revised to cover the impact of the best value regime
  • Incorporates the new EC Directive introducing standard procedures for the procurement of goods and services
  • Now includes more extensive analysis of key practical issues such as framework agreements and PFI procurement
  • An increasingly important area of law - growth of the PFI regime means an ever greater number of organisations are involved in the public procurement process
