Andrew Daly, Partner, and Head of Procurement, at Hempsons, will provide an interactive session addressing:

  • A review of the various changes to procurement law that have taken place over 2021 and a look to the future with the proposed amendments; and
  • Common areas of challenge and how to mitigate against these high risk areas and lessons learned from the past 12 months
  • Q&A

Andrew has over 17 years’ experience of working with the NHS and specialises in procurement law, acting both for contracting authorities and bidders.

Andrew utilises the knowledge gained from acting for clients on both sides of the fence to provide pragmatic advice on running defensible procurement processes/defending procurement law challenges, and also to advise bidders on improving their chances of success/challenging defective processes.

Andrew led on the successful and timely delivery of one of the first innovation partnership procedures under the Public Contracts Regulations 2015 and regularly advises on designing and structuring processes, drafting procurement documentation and defending procurement law challenges. He also acted for the commissioner in defending the first NHS v NHS procurement challenge to reach the courts.

When acting for bidders, Andrew seeks to challenge processes, looking at areas where the bidder has been discriminated against. He has successfully overturned a number of procurement processes on behalf of bidders. Andrew recently advised the two trusts in Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust & Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust v Lancashire County Council [2018] EWHC 1589 (TCC).
