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.
