The Ministry of Defence (MOD) is consulting stakeholders on the approach to implementing the new Defence and Security procurement Directive (Directive 2009/81/EC). As this Directive primarily affects defence contracting, MOD has lead responsibility for coordinating transposition.
This first consultation seeks feedback on the approach and seeks views on a range of specific issues. The deadline for responses is 10 March 2010. The consultation document can be accessed via this link.

2009 - Second Consultation on the new Remedies Directive (Closed)
OGC's second public consultation on the implementation of the new Remedies Directive took place during the summer of 2009. It sought stakeholders' views on draft Regulations and some other important policy matters.
The exercise was very successful, eliciting a good response from a wide range of contracting authorities, legal and advisory firms, and industry representatives. Detailed analytical work followed the consultation, which led to the finalising of the regulations and the successful implementation of the new Directive by the EU deadline of 20 December 2009.
The list below contains the consultation papers, including OGC's response:
2008 - First Consultation on the new Remedies Directive (Closed)
This consultation has closed. OGC consulted stakeholders in 2008 on the approach to implementing new EU Remedies Directive (Council Directive 2007/66/EC).
OGC ran the first of two consultations in the Autumn of 2008. This sought opinions on the approach to the Directive's' implementation, in particular seeking feedback on various optional elements. The consultation evoked a positive response which helped to inform decisions on the policy options.
The first Remedies consultation document is provided below, along with the text of the new Remedies Directive and a draft Regulatory Impact Assessment (as annexes to the consultation document):
OGC received comments on the draft amendments from a number of interested parties and the period for consultation has now closed. There were no substantive changes to the EU procurement rules and the amendments do not affect the majority of stakeholders.
