The Coalition Government has made the following commitments with regard to publishing agreed contracts:
- All new central government ICT contracts over the value of £10,000 to be published in full online from July 2010
- All new central government contracts to be published in full from January 2011.
At 21st February GEO and EHRC had no contracts meeting these criteria.
Suppliers and those organisations looking to bid for public sector contracts should be aware that if they are awarded a new Government contract, the resulting contract between the supplier and Government will be published. In some circumstances, limited redactions will be made to some contracts before they are published in order to comply with existing law and for the protection of national security.
