UK Public Procurement through VCSEs, 2016-2020 Report for the Department for Culture, Media and Sport
The Office for Civil Society has published a report analysing the scale and proportion of UK public sector procurement conducted through Voluntary and Community organisations and Social Enterprises (VCSEs).
The report has been written by Tussell, independent analysts and consultants on public sector contracting. It uses their data on UK government contracts and spending to analyse contracts awarded to VCSEs by the UK public sector and invoices paid to VCSEs by the UK public sector. The report answers questions on the total value and proportion of procurement going through VCSEs, the nature of the VCSE organisations involved, their geographic spread, and the sustainability of the supplier market.
