Single Source Contract Regulations

Contents: The Single Source Contract Regulations are UK legislation, made by the Secretary of State under powers conferred by Part 2 of the Defence Reform Act. The regulatory framework applies to “single source contracts” (contracts which are not subject to a legal obligation to be advertised and competed) in the defence area. The framework applies both to primary contracts, called qualifying defence contracts, and to non-competed sub-contracts resulting from those primary contracts, called qualifying sub-contracts.
