Procurement Policy Note 02/20: Supplier relief due to COVID-19

Procurement Policy Note (PPN) 02/20 sets out information and guidance for public bodies on payment of their suppliers to ensure service continuity during and after the current coronavirus (COVID-19), outbreak.

The department has produced further detailed guidance to support the use of this PPN, focusing on 3 important areas:

  • helping to determine if you are a contracting authority – and therefore whether PPN02/20 applies to you
  • to provide you with some overarching principles and guidance on how you may choose to review and respond to supplier requests within the scope of the PPN
  • specific guidance on school food contracts

For questions related to PPN 02/20, please contact

Buyers in schools or those who manage contracts can also find coronavirus (COVID-19) procurement advice on the buying for schools GOV.UK pages.
