Much obliged. Reply Link Spike 9 February 2011 at 18:02 The EU procurement regulation imposes open advertising and tendering rules for public contracts. These do not apply where a public body obtains services from “in-house” sources. This is the Tekal exemption. The Brent/Harrow case was about what constitutes “in-house”.
