Welsh Procurement Policy Note 01/21: Sourcing steel in major construction and infrastructure projects in Wales (WPPN 01/21)8 March 2021Welsh Procurement Policy Note sets out actions for contracting authorities sourcing steel
The Welsh Government issued Welsh Procurement Policy Note 01/21: Sourcing steel in major construction and infrastructure projects in Wales (WPPN 01/21). Replacing previous guidance published in January 2018, WPPN 01/21 reminds in-scope contracting authorities how to use the procurement lifecycle to identify any opportunity to support the ‘strategically important’ UK steel industry and maximise the socio-economic and environmental impact of the contract. WPPN 01/21 applies to all contracting authorities whose functions are wholly or mainly Welsh devolved functions with immediate effect. The Welsh Government has also adopted the UK Government’s Procurement Policy Note 01/21: Procurement in an Emergency (PPN 01/21), providing guidance on options and risks in emergency procurement, with the Welsh public sector encouraged to follow suit.
