Managing national security risks in procurement – Guidance released

Guidance on managing national security risks in public procurement has been released.

Rule 44: Reasons to exclude a supplier

The guidance comes into effect from 14 August 2023 for any new procurements.

The guidance will provide a consistent All-of-Government approach and help agencies:

  • to determine whether a risk exists
  • by covering what are national security risks
  • by providing a supplier risk matrix
  • by including a framework of how to go about considering mitigation in planning, sourcing and managing stages; and
  • by suggesting good practice considerations and contract clauses.

Agencies will not need to use this guidance for all their procurements. We have created a flow chart of questions to help you decide.

On 29 August we will host a Knowledge Hour to support agencies, invite questions and facilitate collaboration.
