DLA has promoted Steven Norris to the role of national head of regulated procurement.
Norris will lead a group advising public and private sector clients on procurement matters. Norris will operate from the firm's Leeds office. He said: "The regulation of procurement by the public and utility sectors is of ever-increasing importance, both from a commercial and a legal perspective." The group will assist clients to comply with national and EU directives, including the Government Procurement Agreement. Norris said: "The award by bodies operating in these sectors of large-scale contracts for works, services or supplies will often be subject to one or more of a number of legal regimes that are designed, essentially, to ensure that effective competition takes place. "My intention is to build on strong foundations so that DLA acquires a good reputation across the EU for advising on regulated procurement matters."
