Solve the mystery of government procurement - this Wednesday

Stephen Allott the Crown Representative for SMEs is holding a live web chat on Wednesday 19 December between 3 and 4pm on public procurement and wants to hear experiences (good and bad) of SMEs bidding for public sector work. You can join the debate at or via Twitter using hashtag #MysteryShopper.

This is part of the 'Mystery Shopper' service run by the Cabinet Office which allows suppliers to give feedback to the public sector on procurements. The service claims to have achieved a successful outcome in 77% of cases reported to it with changes made to major procurements by organisations such as the Government Procurement Service and Department for Transport.

Suppliers can email or use this online form. Full details of the service are set out in the Cabinet Office's Scope and Remit document.
