Webinar: Directly awarding contracts whilst following the rules replay
Watch our Directly awarding contracts whilst following the rules webinar replay with Emily Powell & Gruffydd Cartwright
The third session in our Build conference, Emily Powell examines the circumstances where it is possible to directly award, extend or modify contracts during their terms.
The Cabinet Office confirmed that the direct award of public contracts was possible by relying on the extreme urgency brought about by the Covid outbreak, but certain tests had to be met. Emily Powell, Partner in our Commercial team, examines the circumstances where it is possible to directly award contracts, extend or modify contracts during their terms or accelerate a standard procurement procedure without finding yourself in deep water and ensure you follow the right steps to protect against a successful legal challenge.
We have posted the webinar recording above, for you to watch at your leisure. You can watch the other Build & Nurture conference webinars on our dedicated webpage.
