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>
