Consequences of Brexit in the area of public procurement

Arrowsmith, Sue


Sue Arrowsmith


This paper examines the implications of the UK’s departure from the EU for the EU-UK legal relationship in the field of public procurement. It assesses, in comparison with the position under EU membership, the implications of four approaches found in the EU’s relationships with other trading partners: the EEA model; the GPA model; and, between these two, what we call an “EEA-minus” approach and a “GPA-plus” approach. It also notes the procurement-specific issues that may need to be addressed in any withdrawal agreement (or later transition arrangement).
This document was prepared for Policy Department A at the request of the Committee on Internal Market and Consumer Protection.
