High value notices make up around 34% of all contract opportunities in the UK, with lower-value notices making the other 66%. The thresholds which determine if contracts are higher or lower value changes biennially, and vary in value for goods, works and services. Details of current thresholds can be found here.
Prior to 1 January 2020, high-value notices were published to the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU). With the conclusion of Brexit, high-value notices from the UK are no longer advertised on the OJEU. UK businesses can, however, still bid for applicable EU contracts. Further details on the changes introduced with Brexit can be found here.
