Public Accounts Committee
Following the collapse of Carillion plc the House of Commons resolved that the Public Accounts Committee receive the Government’s risk assessments of its Strategic Suppliers. Strategic Suppliers are companies that receive over £100m in revenue per year from Government contracts. Many of the Strategic Suppliers are companies that the PAC has previously encountered in its work on projects across Government.
The Committee published the risk assessments relating to Carillion on 23 May 2018. It reserves the right to publish papers relating to other Strategic Suppliers. Having reviewed these papers, the Committee wishes to explore the way in which Government interacts with Strategic Suppliers, and examine whether delivering public services through them represents good value for money for the taxpayer.
