The Office of Government Commerce (OGC) has confirmed that the Department for Education and Skills (DfES) will be the pilot department for its new Procurement Capability Reviews.
The Procurement Capability Reviews were initially outlined in Transforming Government Procurement, the new strategy for delivering high-quality procurement across central Government, which was launched by HM Treasury in January.
John Healey MP, Financial Secretary to the Treasury, said: ‘Good procurement is essential to delivering good quality public services, and we will only achieve good procurement across Government if we know we have the right skills and capability in place. This programme of Procurement Capability Reviews draws on the very valuable learning that has been obtained through the Treasury’s Financial Management Reviews and the Cabinet Office’s Departmental Capability Reviews, and will allow us to ensure that we have the information on which we can build a world class procurement capability across Government.’
