As with previous years’ annual reports, the available data is presented by department, rather than for the whole of government. It is not possible to provide a figure on the proportion which met or exceeded the Government Buying Standards for the whole of government, as not all departments were able to report complete information.</p><p>It is the responsibility of each Department to put the Government Buying Standards into practice in its own procurement activity.</p> more like this
