unstar this property answer text <p /> <p>This Government takes recovery and enforcement of financial impositions very seriously and remains committed to finding new ways to ensure impositions are paid and to trace those who do not pay. This is why there has been a year on year increase in the total amount of financial penalties collected over the last three years. The amount of money collected reached an all time high of £290 million at the end of 2013/14 and collections continue to rise. In 2013/14 the total outstanding balance of financial impositions reduced by £26.7m (5%) in the year.</p><p> </p><p>The table below shows the value of compensation orders imposed in North Wales over the last three years and the value that had been recovered by the end of the year imposed.</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p><strong>Year</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Compensation imposed</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Collected in same year of imposition</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Cancelled in same year of imposition </strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Outstanding at end of year of imposition</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2011/12</p></td><td><p>£508,150</p></td><td><p>£174,652</p></td><td><p>£29,241</p></td><td><p>£304,258</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2012/13</p></td><td><p>£485,074</p></td><td><p>£184,810</p></td><td><p>£24,535</p></td><td><p>£275,730</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2013/14</p></td><td><p>£562,557</p></td><td><p>£200,850</p></td><td><p>£9,230</p></td><td><p>£352,478</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p>The value of the impositions that remain outstanding at the end of the year includes accounts that were not due to be paid by the end of the period specified (either because they were imposed close to the end of the year or because they had payment timescales set by the courts for beyond the end of the financial year) and those that were being paid by instalments on agreed payment plans.</p><p> </p><p>The values cancelled could be legal or administrative cancellations. Administrative cancellations only take place in certain circumstances and after all attempts to collect the amount outstanding have been made. These circumstances include where the offender has died, where they have emigrated with no prospect of return, where the offender has been sent to a mental institution for 12 months or more or where the offender cannot be traced and there has been at least 12 months from the point of imposition. It should be noted that administrative cancellations can be re-instated if the prospects of recovery improve (where, for example, a new address is found).</p><p> </p><p>Legal cancellations occur after the case has been reconsidered by a judge or magistrate and further evidence has been presented. Legal cancellations can be as a result of a successful appeal, a change in financial circumstances of the offender or a committal to prison for non payment. The majority of the cancellations applied within the same year of imposition will be as a result of legal cancellation.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p /> <p>The Ministry of Justice is mandated to encourage Small and Medium-Sized Enterprise (SME) engagement and the policy is set out by the Cabinet Office; this is a government wide agenda. SME participation is encouraged by removing barriers and making the procurement process faster and less complex. Most recently the government issued policy supporting a number of new reforms to make public procurement even more accessible to businesses, particularly SMEs. These new reforms take account of the wide consultation and engagement that the Government has undertaken with public bodies, small businesses and trade bodies over the last two years and in response to Lord Young’s recommendations to Government in his report ‘Growing Your Business’ (May 2013). These reforms are implemented in Part 4 of the new Public Contracts Regulations 2015, and have been embedded into MoJ procurement processes.</p><p>Secondly the Social Values Act must be taken into consideration. Thought must be given to the economic, social and environmental well being of the relevant areas and applied as appropriate to the procurement process.</p><p>The full policies can be found at the following links:</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/procurement-policy-note-04-12-procurement-supporting-growth-supporting-material-for-departments" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/procurement-policy-note-04-12-procurement-supporting-growth-supporting-material-for-departments</a></p><p><a title="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/procurement-policy-note-0315-reforms-to-make-public-procurement-more-accessible-to-smes" href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/procurement-policy-note-0315-reforms-to-make-public-procurement-more-accessible-to-smes" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/procurement-policy-note-0315-reforms-to-make-public-procurement-more-accessible-to-smes</a></p><p><a href="http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/2012/3/enacted" target="_blank">http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/2012/3/enacted</a></p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/61169/The_20Compact.pdf" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/61169/The_20Compact.pdf</a></p><p> </p><p>The MoJ has exceeded the Government’s stated aspiration that 25 per cent of government procurement expenditure goes to SMEs. The MoJ is one of the top performing departments, with over £1.7bn (37 per cent) of procurement expenditure going to SMEs in 2013/14.</p>
