star this property answer text <p>The Department’s remit is delivered mostly through its Arm’s Length Bodies and Executive Agencies. Each body assesses prospective suppliers’ ability to deliver its obligations during each procurement exercise before the award of contracts. This to comply with procurement regulations and statute, as well as evaluate the company’s competence and capability. Before contracts are signed there are various layers of governance across the ALBs, the Department, Cabinet Office and HM Treasury depending on the circumstances of each procurement. There are also measures in place to monitor financial stability throughout the procurement lifecycle.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The rail industry has been shifting away from RPI over time and most rail industry costs now are not linked to RPI, with the primary exception of wages. The Secretary of State for Transport has asked the Rail Delivery Group (RDG) to develop an approach for how earnings growth for all employees could be more closely aligned with CPI, with the aim of ensuring that the railway is affordable for the fare paying and tax paying public. He has not made any reference to a ‘pay award system’ for any groups of staff.</p><p><em> </em></p><p>Pay negotiations and the settlements reached by individual employers and trade unions remain a matter for local collective bargaining.</p> more like this
