Departmental Catering

Volume 488: debated on Wednesday 25 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice which (a) food and (b) drinks suppliers have been used by his Department in each of the last three years; and how much his Department paid to each such supplier in each of those years. (248389)

The data in the following tables show spend on food and drink by supplier at the Ministry of Justice (MOJ) since its creation on 1 May 2007. The majority of spend is on food for use in HM Prison Service and includes food for resale to staff and catering for prisoners and staff. The remainder represents food for catering across other parts of the Ministry of Justice. 93.4 per cent. of Ministry of Justice spend on food in 2007-08 were through nationally contracted suppliers.

National contracted suppliers are shown separately in each section. These are the suppliers that are expected to be used on a continuous basis. Those marked with an asterix are used in the current financial year. All other contracts have expired and have been subsumed into other contracts by application of MOJ food procurement policy.

Ad-hoc supplier spend includes a combination of off-contract spend, food bought for resale (e.g. staff canteens) and the use of the Government Procurement Card (for ad-hoc purchases, e.g. unavailable within national contracts or emergency requirement). These figures may also include some non-food items as there are suppliers within this list that sell non-food items which are however primarily a food provider.

It was only possible to identify the use of these suppliers following implementation of an e-procurement system in 2007. By the nature of these purchases, it is not expected that these suppliers will be used in the future.
