Direct Award Contracts (DAC's)
Public procurement should, in the majority of cases, be subject to competition to ensure best value for money. DACs are also known as Single Tender Actions and occur when a contract is awarded to a contractor without a competition, or where there is a material change to an existing contract.
Education Authority (EA) as a Centre of Procurement Expertise (CoPE) is obliged to publish all DACs for which they are responsible, of values greater than £30,000.
The document below provides details of all current DACs awarded by EA of values greater than £30,000.
