The Office of Government Commerce (OGC) is an independent office of HM Treasury, established to help Government deliver best value from its spending. The OGC works with central government departments and other public sector organisations to ensure the achievement of six key goals:
- Delivery of value for money from third party spend;
- Delivery of projects to time, quality and cost, realising benefits;
- Getting the best from the Government’s £30bn estate;
- Improving the sustainability of the Government estate and operations, including reducing carbon emissions by 12.5% by 2010-11, through stronger performance management and guidance;
- Helping achieve delivery of further Government policy goals, including innovation, equality, and support for small and medium enterprises (SMEs);
- And driving forward the improvement of central government capability in procurement, project and programme management, and estates management through the development of people skills, processes and tools.
OGC provides policy standards and guidance on best practice in procurement, projects and estate management, and monitors and challenges Departments’ performance against these standards, grounded in an evidence base of information and assurance. It promotes and fosters collaborative procurement across the public sector to deliver better value for money and better public services; and it provides innovative ways to develop Government’s commercial and procurement capability, including leadership of the Government Procurement Service.
OGC's Supplier Feedback Service
The OGC Supplier Feedback Service (formerly the Complaints Function) was established in April 2007.
Why we need a Supplier Feedback Service
The main aims of the function are:
- To provide a clear, structured and direct route for suppliers to raise concerns about public procurement practice when attempts at resolving issues with a contracting authority have failed.
- To provide reasoned feedback to enquirers on their concerns.
- To help OGC identify areas of poor procurement practice so it can work with the contracting authority to put them right, and help ensure similar cases do not arise in future.
- To take action to reduce the likelihood of similar issues arising in other authorities.
