Lessons Learned In Public Procurement

The National Audit office is working on a Lessons Learned report, highlighting opportunities for change in public procurement.

Topics will include commercial and financial managementefficiency and savings and procurement and contract management.

The government’s policy is to use competition as part of public sector procurement whenever possible as a way of improving efficiency through reducing costs, raising quality, and generating innovation.

However, their past work has frequently found weaknesses in both how government implements individual procurement arrangements and how it ensures it optimises competition, as we discussed in UK Government Under Pressure

The lessons learned report will use cross-government data on public procurement and examples from our past work to demonstrate how government measures competition and bring together lessons on how to best gain benefits from competition in the public sector.

The report is due to be released in Summer 2023.
