On 26th November 2014 the Public Accounts Committee released a report called “Transforming Contract Management” that was highly critical of department’s contract management capabilities. Quotes from the report include:
“First, government will not achieve value for money from its contracts until it pays much more attention to contract management. In essence, the Civil Service has prioritised the work involved in letting contracts and deemed the monitoring of contracts as mechanical and unimportant.”
“Departments have long neglected to devote enough resource and expertise to the ongoing oversight and monitoring of ‘live’ contracts”.
“Government recognises that contracts have not been managed at a sufficiently senior level.”
