Lifecycle partners with Mills and Reeve to develop free Regulation 84 portal

Lifecycle Management Group Ltd has partnered with Mills & Reeve LLP, the leading public-sector procurement lawyers, to develop a free online portal to enable public-sector bodies to ensure they are compliant with Regulation 84 of the Public Contracts Regulations 2015.

Commenting on the new partnership, Peter Mullin, Managing Director of Lifecycle said “We’re thrilled to be collaborating with Mills & Reeve on this project. Nobody knows more about public-sector procurement regulations than they do. Regulation 84 is among the most important regulations as it requires public-sector bodies to maintain contemporaneous records of their procurement decisions, which in turn helps them demonstrate they are compliant with the rest of the regulations. It’s also a requirement that procurement teams struggle with. The new online portal will guide users through an easy-to-use wizard, collecting and storing their answers, providing a detailed, contemporaneous report on demand.”

As Jenny Beresford-Jones of Mills and Reeve explains: “Regulation 84 sets a high bar. We had already developed a checklist for our clients, but Lifecycle are creating an online version in their OPTIMiSe portal that will guide users through the requirements, step-by-step. We look forward to working with them to create a really useful tool for public-sector clients.”

The development will begin immediately and is expected to be available for release by the end of the summer. It will be available free of charge to any public-sector body.
