Jane Hutt, Minister for Finance and Leader of the House
I am today announcing a ‘Wales Procurement Policy Statement’.
In September I welcomed publication of the McClelland review, “Maximising the Impact of Welsh Procurement Policy”, which followed the publication in May of the Enterprise and Business Committee’s Report into “Influencing Modernisation of European Procurement Policy”. Both Reports gave important and constructive messages about a number of areas of Welsh Government policy and practice, and indicated some areas for improvement.
The Wales Procurement Policy Statement clearly sets out the procurement practices and the specific actions that will be required of every public sector organisation in Wales.
There is no doubt that good procurement can drive efficiencies and generate local benefits. I trust this Policy Statement will assist to secure greater levels of both in the future. A debate has been tabled for the New Year by the Welsh Government on “Maximising the Impact of Welsh procurement Policy”.
The Wales Procurement Policy Statement can be found in the attached statements below.
