The draft regulations making it mandatory for anyone entering a registered care home in England to have been double vaccinated unless they are clinically exempt were made on 22 July 2021.
The (current and) new thresholds (other than for central government, utilities and concession contracts) are:
New threshold from 1 January 2018
Services / supplies
“Light touch regime” services*
Small lots** for works
Small lots** for services and supplies
These will apply to all contracts let and procurements that begin after 1 January 2018.
* The Light Touch Regime applies to “social and other specific services” including health, education, catering, postal services and legal services.
** Where a contracting authority has a ‘single requirement’ for works, services or supplies, up to 20% of that requirement may be let as a separate contract, or as a number of contracts as long as each contract has a value less than the applicable small lots threshold.
