BFS Group Ltd v (1) Secretary of State for Defence (2) Purple Foodservice Ltd

Citation: EWHC 1513 (Ch); [2006] Eu. L.R. 1101

Nature of case:
This decision concerned an application by BFS for an interim injunction to stop the award of a worldwide contract for armed forces’ food, governed by the Public Supply Contracts Regulations 1995. BFS argued that the Secretary of State for Defence, acting through the Defence Logistics Organisation (“DLO”), had acted unlawfully by failing to participate in any negotiation with the Claimant; that the award criteria had not been applied fairly; and that the DLO had not acted with fairness and transparency.
