PASC report (Public Administration Select Committee) on public procurement – our full review

Spend Matters UK - We featured the UK parliament’s Public Administration Select Committee report when it was issued a few weeks back but our detailed review got overtaken somewhat by other public sector news like the Health procurement strategy and David Smith’s retirement!

One comment made since publication was the lack of any practitioners from government departments giving evidence. I kicked myself when I read this – of course, it’s a great point and we should have made it here. My only defence is it is hard to know who is going to be called as witnesses until the review is complete, so at what stage does it become clear that there is a gap? Anyway, a well-made point. And finally, here is our more detailed look at the PASC findings.
