star this property answer text <p>We launched the Outsourcing Playbook in February 2019 and introduced a package of<br>reforms to our approach to outsourcing designed to improve public service outcomes, value<br>for money and how we work in partnership with our suppliers</p><p>Measures include:<br>Guidance for departments to help assess whether services should be delivered, in-house by<br>the public sector or outsourced. This should support more informed decisions on when it is<br>best to deliver public services ourselves and when there is benefit to drawing on the capacity<br>and expertise of the private sector;<br>Introduction of a new presumption in favour of running a pilot where government is<br>outsourcing a service so we learn lessons before contracting for the long term; and<br>A new requirement for government to produce an assessment of how much a service<br>‘should cost’ to deliver when deciding whether to utilise the private sector. This helps to<br>provide a better understanding of the costs associated with the different service delivery<br>models so that we are in a better position to challenge unsustainable bids</p><p>We have put in place an implementation programme to ensure that our departments are<br>aware of these new requirements. Compliance with these reforms will be ensured through<br>the usual Cabinet Office controls process.</p>

star this property answer text <p>We have developed a light touch model for calculating social value in government procurement, representing the minimum standard on social value that we expect departments to consider in their procurement activity. The model comprises a set of high level themes, a set of priority policy outcomes grouped under each theme, standard award criteria and a menu of specific metrics for departments to use in contract management and reporting.</p><p> </p><p>Each policy outcome will have standard award criteria and a suggested set of evaluation questions for departments to consider, and a corresponding set of proposed metrics that should be used by departments to performance manage the delivery of the contract. Bidders will need to submit questions based on these metrics where they have been selected.</p><p> </p><p>In March 2019, we launched a public consultation on the final measures that will form part of the overall social value framework. The consultation will encompass the proposed questions and reporting metrics that will be used to compare the relative social value of bids for central government contracts. The consultation closes on 10 June 2019.</p><p> </p><p>We are also developing proposals for government’s biggest suppliers to provide data and action plans for how they plan to address key issue such as ethnic minority representation in their workforce, the gender pay gap throughout the company and what they are doing to tackle the scourge of modern slavery.</p>
