Public Sector Round Up 21.08.20

In the news this week, we saw £77m allocated to York’s new city centre quarter, £2.3million to help North Devon Hospital this winter and £260m of Coronavirus support for Welsh councils.
Our top OJEU notices for the week include £16m catering supplies in Paisley, £70m road construction in Portsmouth and £14m marine construction in Glasgow.
We also saw two significant prior information notices announced, one to improve NHS waiting times and the other for residential development across Wales.
In our look at the number or tenders published over the last 7 days, we are only slightly up on the previous week, but still showing an upward trend since lockdown was relaxed.
