Driving best-practice procurement in Wales

6Sustainable Food Buying

Don't forget...


If specifications are felt to contain unnecessary barriers to supply (eg specific packaging requirements), then the acceptance of variants can provide a solution and this is permitted under the Public Contracts Regulations 2015. This may be the case where the specification provides a minimum standard but organisations wish to accept and give value to a higher quality product.

Minimum standards for variants must be clarified in the contract documentation and consideration should be given as to how variant bids will be assessed / scored.


Don't forget...

Sustainable food procurement can have positive effects on the environment, economy and society.
