National Survey of Third Sector Organisations

Volume 497: debated on Tuesday 13 October 2009

To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office which body won the contract for the National Survey of Third Sector Organisations with the reference project 17576; what the monetary value of the contract is; and when the results of the survey will be published. (290141)

The National Survey of Third Sector Organisations was let by competitive tender in two lots. Lot A was to provide a sample frame for the survey. Lot B was to conduct a survey of third sector organisations on that sample frame, conduct analysis and publish results.

Lot A was won by a consortium led by BMG Research, and Lot B was won by Ipsos MORI. The value of these contracts is commercially confidential and is not published to protect the commercial interests of the Cabinet Office in tendering similar work on a competitive basis.

A copy of the headline results of the survey have been placed in the Libraries of both Houses. The detailed results, together with analysis, are available at:
