star this property answer text <p>The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) does not maintain an authoritative central record of the number of private prosecutions taken over. To identify the exact number of times the CPS took over or forced the discontinuation of a private prosecution brought by the RSPCA would require a manual exercise to review individual files which would incur a disproportionate cost.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>MyCSP Ltd took over administration of the Civil Service pensioner payroll in September 2014. The majority of the 658,000 pensioners - 14,000 of them are overseas - have been paid accurately and on time since September.</p><p>During the transfer MyCSP unexpectedly inherited 5,579 cases from the previous supplier where payments had been delayed or missed. MyCSP has now cleared all but 740 of these. 109 of the remaining cases are overseas pensioners awaiting payments because new banking mandates need to be completed to allow processing by the new paying bank. MyCSP is working to clear the remaining cases where payments are due before Christmas (but are in some cases dependent on employers or pensioner members for the necessary information to do so). Where delayed payment is causing hardship MyCSP has been making emergency interim payments to members.</p><p>The recent service issues are not a result of the mutual joint-venture (MJV) model. In fact, the mutual joint venture has enabled investment in new technology to replace legacy systems. This transformation will allow MyCSP to deliver a wider range of services (including online services) to higher standards whilst almost halving the cost of pensions administration over 10 years.</p><p>Since mutualisation, MyCSP has improved productivity by 15% year-on-year, driven down staff absenteeism and has improved both staff engagement and customer satisfaction, despite inheriting legacy systems.</p><p> </p>

We have put in place a raft of policies to overhaul procurement, reduce bureaucracy and increase transparency. Our work has significantly increased the proportion of spend going to SMEs.</p><p>Information on Government contracts over £10,000 is now published on contracts finder. A new version on Contracts Finder will be launched shortly which will allow users to search by area.</p><p>The Government Digital Service publishes information on their supplier spend.
