Key messages

  • The LGA supports enabling more small businesses and voluntary sector organisations to bid successfully for public sector tenders. However, we are concerned that the Government intends to use the powers in the Bill to centralise procurement, which will not work for local government and small businesses who are interested in providing goods and services within their localities. The LGA will be seeking clarification from the Government as to their intentions for the power in the Bill.
  • Public money must always be spent in a clear and accountable way and provisions in the Bill which aim to ensure this in relation to public sector exit payments are welcome. The LGA is, however, concerned that such a proposal could have unforeseen and unfair consequences and urges the Government to provide more detail about how this will work in practice.
