New January 2020 OJEU thresholds

Updated: Apr 1, 2020

We may have left the EU but OJEU thresholds continue to be relevant in procurement. The new thresholds for 2020 - 2022 were published in December 2019 and are as follows:

For main contracts -

Works £4,733,252

Services* £189,330

Supplies* £189,330

* other than for schedule 1 bodies(central government bodies) for which the threshold is £122,976 for each, services and supplies.

Subsidised service contracts for all bodies £189,330

The threshold for the Light Touch Regime for services is set at £663,540

Small lot thresholds are -

Works £884,720

Services £70,778

Supplies £70,778

As previously, the value of the contract includes the value of any potential contract extension.

The threshold for services and supplies mean that a three year contract with a potential for a two year extension and an annual value of just £37,866 will need to be procured following the OJEU process in accordance with the Public Contract Regulations 2015.
