Nigel Smith

29 July 2008

In the latest issue of SM, Nigel Smith, chief executive of the OGC, argues the government does not get value for money from its procurement operations.

Addressing delegates from the energy industry at a procurement seminar in London last week, Smith said: “Does government get value for money now? I'd have to say, in my limited experience over nine months, the answer has to be 'no'. I don't think you would find anybody in government who would answer 'yes'.”

Do you think his comments are fair?

If you agree, what must the public sector do to secure better value for money?
