answer text <p>Contracts are never awarded lightly: each has an agreed and robust process. Government has always been compliant with public procurement regulations and follows these diligently when assessing the suitability of suppliers to deliver a particular contract.</p><p>As noted by the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster’s speeches in June and November 2018, the Cabinet Office is currently taking forward a package of reforms to Government outsourcing policy. This includes creating a ‘playbook’ of guidelines, rules and processes for departments to follow when they outsource.</p><p>We are also reviewing how we assess suppliers’ financial health and what financial information we should seek during the procurement process. This will enable the Government to assess the level of risk that should be accepted, the extent to which we rely on historical financial information as an indicator of future financial health, and whether it is appropriate to seek and rely on forecast information. We will be issuing new guidance for departments on assessing the financial and economic standing of bidders in the coming months.</p>

answer text <p>The Government is committed to making sure that our electoral system is fit for the future. Vulnerabilities cannot be allowed to undermine the integrity of our democracy.</p><p> </p><p>As part of the Government’s manifesto commitment to ensure that a form of identification must be presented before voting, five voter ID pilots took place at the local elections on 3 May 2018. In order for us to have a deeper understanding of how voter ID will work on a wider scale and what works best for voters, we plan to continue to pilot voter ID at next year’s local elections.</p><p> </p><p>Part of our evaluation of the 2018 pilots and that of the Electoral Commission has been to understand the cost impact of voter ID. That analysis will be developed further when voter ID is piloted in 2019 and will help to inform decisions on voter ID in the future and ensure its cost effectiveness.</p> more like this
