A new online feedback facility has been launched by the government to enable SMEs to share their public procurement stories.

The facility asks suppliers how to ‘rip up the red tape and bring more common sense into securing government contracts’.

At the launch of the facility, vendors have been asked to identify what aspects of the procurement process should be targeted to make the services quicker, cheaper and better.

Addressing suppliers, minister for the cabinet office Francis Maude says: ‘You will all have experienced procurements that seemed to go on forever, cost millions of pounds and took countless hours of your employees’ time and energy. I know how frustrating this can be and I can promise you that we will do things differently.’
