In June 2019, the Cabinet Office consulted on social value in the award of central government contracts.
We provided a collective response on behalf of member leisure and culture trusts as we are gravely concerned about the state of public service procurement practice.
Our concerns are in regard to the longer term, damaging impact of current practice on communities and generations to come. The methods and behaviours displayed in procurement/re-procurement practice and the resulting contracts created (in public leisure) are damaging public services and their deliverers.
Update 24 September 2020: The Government has summarised all public responses and commented on how they will incorporate the public suggestions. The Government’s response is available here.
