My honourable friend the Economic Secretary has made the following Written Ministerial Statement.
Buying Solutions has been set for four performance targets for 2010-11. These are as follows:
to facilitate at least £1,000 million value-for-money improvements (£800 million cashable) for the public sector in 2010-11;
to achieve an overall customer satisfaction level of above 90 per cent;
to make a return on capital employed of 6.5 per cent over a five-year period (April 2009 to March 2014); and
to reduce by 5 per cent the ratio of internal costs over value for money improvements with the outturn for the same ratio in 2009-10 proportionate to cashable savings.
