Public procurement law, regulating public sector purchasing of certain contracts for goods, works and services, is an area of EU law which is closely intertwined with the UK's economy. It will almost inevitably be affected by the consequences of Brexit.At a time of significant uncertainty, this book explores policy directions which domestic procurement law could take in the future, including whether 'Buy National' policies might feasibly be introduced, or whether existing procurement procedures could be significantly reviewed.
