​The British High Commission regularly reports to the Government on significant developments in South Africa, and is aware of the findings of the Nugent Commission on the work Bain & Company conducted for the South African Revenue Service. Assessments on the probity and quality of work on individual British Government contracts are undertaken on a department by department basis. A British Government department seeking bids for contracts covered by the Public Contracts Regulations would need to follow the rules on exclusions as defined within Regulation 57.
