(3) In complying with this regulation, contracting authorities shall have regard to any guidance issued by the Minister for the Cabinet Office in relation to—

(a)the form and manner in which the information is to be published on Contracts Finder; and

(b)what is a reasonable time for the purposes of paragraph (1).

“SME” means an enterprise falling within the category of micro, small and medium-sized enterprises defined by the Commission Recommendation of 6 May 2003 concerning the definition of micro, small and medium-sized enterprises(1); and
