To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster and Minister for the Cabinet Office, when he plans to publish his Department's response to the consultation Transforming Public Procurement, which closed on 10 March 2021.
20 September 2021
Over 600 responses to the Green Paper were received, which have been analysed in detail; the feedback received has been invaluable in helping us to develop our thinking in a number of areas. We continue to work with key stakeholders on the details of our proposals. The plan is to publish the formal Government response to the consultation in the coming months, in advance of introduction of the Procurement Bill. The Bill will be introduced when Parliamentary time allows.
