2021 Analysis of UK Government Strategic Suppliers

2021 Analysis of UK Government Strategic Suppliers

Posted by James Piggott on 16-Sep-2021 14:34:31

Introduction

Around a third of UK government spending goes on the procurement of goods and services from third-party suppliers, ranging from paper clips to major infrastructure projects.

Some of these suppliers are deemed so critical to the delivery of essential public services that the Cabinet Office designates them as Strategic Suppliers to the government.

In this blog, we provide an overview of:

A much more extensive analysis of the Strategic Suppliers can be found in our 2021 report. To download the full report, click here.

What are the Strategic Suppliers?

The Strategic Suppliers are private sector companies whose relationship with the government is centrally coordinated through the Cabinet Office, due to the strategic importance of the goods and services they provide.

Though not an official requirement, the government typically spends over £100 million per year with these suppliers.

The Cabinet Office manages the Strategic Supplier programme as part of its responsibility for supporting 'collective government' and promoting efficiency and reform through better procurement and project management.

  • Since 2011, each Strategic Supplier has had a 'Crown Representative' within the Cabinet Office. Crown Representatives act as a focal point for suppliers and help the government to act as a single customer. They ensure that the government is communicating a consistent message to its suppliers, identify areas for cost savings and coordinate cross-departmental procurement issues.

  • Since 2019, the Cabinet Office has operated a 'Memorandums of Understanding' approach with the Strategic Suppliers. The MOU approach puts the onus on suppliers to provide the government with the information it needs to monitor and manage risks. The Cabinet Office argue this policy is more efficient and flexible, and increases the accountability of these suppliers to the government.

What are the pros and cons of becoming a Strategic Supplier?

Making it onto the government's Strategic Supplier list is a major accomplishment for any company.

With a dedicated Crown Representative, Strategic Suppliers' relationships to the government are managed more centrally and strategically. Their close proximity to the heart of government will offer unrivalled liaising opportunities with key procurement stakeholders.

On the other hand, becoming a Strategic Supplier comes with much greater scrutiny and oversight. The Strategic Supplier programme's use of MOUs means, as the Cabinet Office describe, "strategic suppliers will agree to provide the government with the information it needs to monitor and manage risks", with the aim of increasing "accountability".

 

Who are the Strategic Suppliers?

As of September 2021 there are 40 companies designated as Strategic Suppliers. This is a dynamic list - some companies join the list (in early 2021, BEA Systems and Thales were added to the list), whilst others are removed (most notably Carillion after its collapse); the addition or removal of Strategic Supplies can happen at any time.

The Strategic Suppliers operate in sectors across the UK economy, including telecomms, defence, IT, consultancy, facilities management and construction. Tussell's 2021 report found that from 2019-2020 strategic suppliers earned £15.7bn from the UK public sector, representing 14% of overall spending (despite making up less than 1% of the total number of suppliers).

Some of the key findings from our 2021 Strategic Suppliers report include:

  • From Sept 2019 - Aug 2020, Strategic Supplier revenue remained flat, despite an 11% increase in total public expenditure.

  • The number of contracts won by Strategic Suppliers decreased due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • 7 Central Government bodies spent 1/3rd or more of their procurement budget with Strategic Suppliers.

  • 4 Strategic Suppliers earned more than £1bn from the public sector.
