New EU Procurement Thresholds

The European Commission has revised the thresholds at which the public sector must advertise tendering opportunities across Europe.

The new thresholds, which will come into effect from 1 January 2014, are slightly lower than the 2013 values due to fluctuations in exchange rates.

Threshold Levels from 1st January 2014

  •  Supplies/Services contracts awarded by central government - £111,676
  • Supplies/Services contracts awarded by all other contracting bodies - £172,514
  • Works contracts - £4,332,012
  • Small Lots - Supplies & Services £66,672, Works £833,400
Whatever the contract value, it is always worthwhile registering your business on the NEPO Portal.  Registration is free and means that you will receive email alerts on the latest tendering opportunities from NEPO and the twelve North East local authorities.  Click here to find out more about registering as a supplier.
