(a)contracts which have as their subject-matter two or more types of procurement (works, services or supplies) shall be awarded in accordance with the provisions applicable to the type of procurement that characterises the main subject-matter of the contract in question; and

(b)in the case of—

(i)mixed contracts consisting partly of services to which Section 7 applies and partly of other services, or

(ii)mixed contracts consisting partly of services and partly of supplies,

the main subject-matter shall be determined in accordance with which of the estimated values of the respective services, or of the respective services and supplies, is the highest.

(2) In the case of contracts which have as their subject-matter procurement covered by this Part and procurement not covered by this Part—

(a)where the different parts of a given contract are objectively separable—

(i)contracting authorities may choose to award separate contracts for the separate parts or to award a single contract;

(ii)where contracting authorities choose to award separate contracts for separate parts, the decision as to which legal regime applies to any one of such separate contracts shall be taken on the basis of the characteristics of the separate part concerned; and

(iii)where contracting authorities choose to award a single contract, this Part applies to the ensuing mixed contract, irrespective of—

(aa)the value of the parts that would otherwise fall under a different legal regime, and

(bb)which legal regime those parts would otherwise have been subject to;

(b)where the different parts of a given contract are objectively not separable, the applicable legal regime shall be determined on the basis of the main subject-matter of that contract.

(3) But where part of a given contract is covered by Article 346 of TFEU or the Defence and Security Regulations, regulation 16 applies instead of paragraph (1) or (2).
