star this property answer text <p>We are committed to using the strength of the Government’s £49bn annual purchasing power to drive social change.</p><p>We are extending the requirements of the 2012 Social Value Act to ensure all major central Government procurements explicitly evaluate social value where appropriate, rather than just ‘consider’ it. This will provide a standard framework for key social outcomes and measures to be evaluated in tenders.</p><p>Additionally, we will also require all departments to report on the social impact of major new procurements, and we will train all 4,000 commercial buyers to take account of social value and procure successfully from social enterprises.</p><p>Furthermore, the Minister for Implementation announced a consultation at the Social Value Summit on 11th March on how government should take account of social value in the award of central government contracts, which closes on 10th June.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>I refer to exchanges in the other place made by the Chancellor regarding the public sector pay cap during the debate on the Queen’s speech on 29<sup>th</sup> June (HC Deb, 29 June 2017, vol. 626, cols 788-789). During those exchanges, the Chancellor stated that the Government’s public sector pay policy remains unchanged. The pay policy has always been designed to strike the right balance between being fair to our public servants and being fair to those who pay for them. That approach has not changed and we continually assess that balance.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>In considering the long-term provision of public services via third-party contracts, the Government Chief Commercial Officer must work with Departments to address the five points made in Dr Sturgess’s report: sustainability, relationships, contracting process, capability and allocation of risks. It is recognised that much needs to be done; but recent progress has been rapid with the introduction of commercial operating standards, a central recruitment hub backed by an Assessment Centre, and more attractive remuneration for commercial specialists. The system of commercial standards drives adherence to policy, and departmental and functional governance ensure our commercial behaviours are on-market and sustainable.</p> more like this
