Article by Jonathan Lewis: Public procurement judicial review—disclosure and expert evidence
Lexis Nexis Public Law analysis written by Jonathan Lewis.
The Good Law Project (GLP), a not-for-profit campaign organisation, judicially reviewed the award of certain contracts by the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care (SSHCS) to the Interested Party (Abingdon) for the manufacture and supply of rapid coronavirus (COVID-19) antibody tests.
