All-Party-Group set up for consumer efficiency

Friday August 12th, 2011

A new All-Party Group has been established to investigate how the public sector can save money by becoming a ‘savvier consumer’ of outsourcing and shared services.

Chaired by Bob Blackman MP, Conservative MP for Harrow East, the  has been set up to improve dialogue and understanding between industry representatives and politicians, as well as bring increased transparency to the industry.  

Bob Blackman commented: “The outsourcing of services represents an opportunity to reduce costs and, at the same time, improve the quality of service provided to the public. As more organisations look to benefit from outsourcing and sharing services, it is vital to learn from past experiences: what had worked and what has not. The All-Party Group is an unrivalled opportunity to build upon these experiences, ensuring shared learning is incorporated into future outsourcing proposals. We are keen to learn from those experienced in outsourcing, on all sides of the relationship – buyers, suppliers and officials.”
