Transparency encourages fair and open competition and provides the public with assurances on value for money. NHS England’s commercial pipeline on Atamis provides a forward look of our anticipated spend.
From 1 April 2022, it will be a legal requirement to publish details of all our major projects and anticipated procurements valued at £2 million or more to comply with Cabinet Office rules on procurement transparency - PPN 05/21. Providers are required to publish their pipelines in line with the following:
- contracting authorities with an annual spend of £200m or more are required from April 2022 to publish procurement pipelines and to benchmark their procurement capability
- contracting authorities with an annual spend of £100m or more are required from April 2023 to publish procurement pipelines and to benchmark their procurement capability
