The Public Services Industry (PSI) Review was launched by John Hutton, Secretary of State for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform in December 2007. Dr DeAnne Julius led the 6 month review which was published on 10th July 2008. She was supported by a project team within BERR and an Advisory Panel with representation from Government, private and third sector businesses, unions and academics. John Hutton has welcomed the review's findings and recommendations and tasked officials in BERR to coordinate a Government Response to be published in Autumn 2008.
The Public Service Industry includes "all private and third sector enterprises that provide services to the public on behalf of Government or to the Government itself". The review provides a factual basis on which to define and PSI, its contribution to GDP and employment, as well as looking at how this has changed over recent years. It reviews the lessons learned about private and third sector delivery of public services in the UK and provides an assessment of how government can help the PSI to be more successful in delivering high quality public services both at home and abroad.
