My Department has used the Negotiated Procedure without Prior Publication procedure for procurements on two separate occasions in 2020 and in 2021 as outlined in the table below. The Negotiated Procedure without Prior Publication is an exceptional procedure and can only be used in a limited number of defined circumstances as set out in Regulation 32 of the European Union (Award of Public Authority Contracts) Regulations 2016. My Department obtained legal advices in advance of those procurements to ensure compliance with the Regulation.
