Departmental Procurement

Volume 499: debated on Wednesday 11 November 2009

To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office what use her Department makes of electronic auctions when undertaking procurement exercises. (299474)

Cabinet Office policy is to always select the procurement strategy most likely to provide best value for money. To date, the Department has not used electronic auctions directly. As a major user of collaborative procurement, the Cabinet Office benefits from contracts placed by other Departments which employ electronic auction functionality.
