Response to the consultation
Evidence submitted in response to this Consultation
Purpose of the consultation
Economy, Infrastructure and Skills
Committee would welcome your views on:
- What is the current position regarding the
proportion of public contracts in Wales that go to Welsh suppliers?
- To what extent could increasing ‘local
procurement’ by the public sector create stronger local supply chains and
build wealth in communities across Wales?
- What is your view of the Welsh
Government’s intended approach to increasing the amount of ‘local
procurement’ undertaken by the public sector in Wales (including how
‘local procurement’ will be defined and monitored; how the principles of
sustainable and ethical procurement are being applied; and how the
statutory goals set by the Well-Being of Future Generations (Wales) Act
are being met)?
- In what ways can local spend, and
collaborative procurement amongst SMEs, be increased and sustained while
working within the EU procurement framework, whatever arrangements may be
in place following Brexit?
- Can you give examples of similar public
procurement initiatives elsewhere in the UK and EU?
deadline for submissions to this inquiry is 13 September 2019.
