Services
Services are divided into two categories, those to which all the regulations apply and those categorised as ‘social and other specific services’ to which only a lighter touch regime applies at a higher threshold.  However contract awards above the relevant threshold for both category services should be communicated to the Commission via a contract award notice published in the OJEU.  In addition for contracting authorities (excluding maintained schools and academies and contracting authorities in Wales and Northern Ireland) a contract award notice must be published on Contracts Finder within 90 calendar days of the contract award date but not before publication of the OJEU contract award notice.
