At London & Partners, we adopt a variety of sourcing approaches to meet our procurement requirements and always seek to ensure we deliver best value for money.
Our engagement with suppliers is governed by the Public Contracts Regulations 2015 and relevant EU legislation.
We trade under our own terms and conditions [PDF 121 KB]. However, if we are procuring under a government framework, we contract under the terms and conditions associated with that framework.

Public Contracts Regulations 2015
Public-sector procurement is subject to a legal framework which encourages free and open competition and value for money, in line with internationally and nationally agreed obligations and regulations.
For the purposes of the regulations, London & Partners is deemed a “contracting authority” and is therefore bound by the Public Contracts Regulations 2015.
We are committed to competitively tendering contracts which are above the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU) thresholds.
EU Procurement thresholds (applicable since 1 January 2018):
- Supply, services and design contracts: £181,302
- Works contracts: £4,551,413
- Social and other specific services: £615,278
These thresholds are reviewed every two years. The next review will be implemented with effect from 1 January 2020.
Our procurement policy
Below these thresholds, we adhere to our own internal policies and procedures.
Our overriding requirement is that all procurement must be based on value for money and should be achieved through competition, unless there are compelling reasons to the contrary.
When a tender process is not subject to the Public Contracts Regulations 2015, because the estimated value of a contract falls below the relevant threshold, we continue to apply the principles of non-discrimination, equal treatment, transparency, mutual recognition and proportionality to all.
