Are you ready for the NHS England April 2024 Supplier Milestone?

By December 15, 2023No Comments

NHS England has released updated the guidance for the 1st April 2024 milestone.

From April 2024, a two-tiered approach will be introduced as follows:

  1. A full Carbon Reduction Plan (CRP) will be required for procurements of high value (£5m per annum exc. VAT and above) and new frameworks operated by in-scope organisations, irrespective of the value of the contract, where relevant and proportionate to the framework.
  2. A Net Zero Commitment (NZC) will be required for procurements of lower value (below £5m per annum exc. VAT and above the relevant PCR threshold). From 1 April 2026, it will be required for contracts below the relevant PCR threshold and above £10k exc. VAT.
