Last year, we published a report looking at the potential impact of the government's new procurement policy that could exclude suppliers with poor payment practices from bidding on public sector contracts. One year on, we look at the positive impact the policy has had, but also find there is still much room for improvement. Enter your details below to download the full report, or read on for the highlights.
This report takes a closer look at the impact of the policy and asks: Has it been a success?
Although we chose to avoid naming suppliers in the previous iteration of the report, this time we provide the names of the top earning suppliers with the worst late-payment performance.
- More than half of central government spending in 2019 was with firms with good payment practices
- Compliance amongst firms earning more than £100m, which includes most of the government's Strategic Suppliers, has increased by nearly 30%
- Improving payment practices in just ten firms would mean spending with poor payers is almost entirely eliminated
