To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office, what steps the Government is taking to ensure that the Civil Service has the (a) project planning, (b) benefits realisation and (c) contract management capabilities required for negotiations with the EU.
25 April 2017
Workforce planning is primarily the responsibility of each department. The Civil Service constantly reviews its capabilities in order to deliver the Government's commitment to leave the EU and get the best deal for the UK. Civil Service HR is working with all departments, functions and professions across the Civil Service to better understand their capacity and capability requirements.
The Civil Service is focused on delivering this Government’s commitment to leave the EU and get the very best deal for the UK. We are equipping ourselves with the right people and the right skills across government to make this happen.
