Departmental Procurement

Volume 480: debated on Monday 6 October 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions if he will place in the Library the names and addresses of each organisation that supplied goods and services to his Department in 2007-08, based on the purchase order data held in the Department’s financial database. (222133)

The Department for Work and Pensions purchases goods and services from a significantly large number and variety of suppliers every year and information in the format requested could be provided only at disproportionate cost. However, a list of the names and addresses of the Department’s top 30 suppliers for 2007-08 (by value of commercial expenditure), and which is readily available, has been placed in the Library.
