Viscount Goschen

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Further to the answer by Lord McIntosh of Haringey on 22 May (HL Deb, col. 764), which government departments they contacted in preparing the answer. [HL4518]

Lord McIntosh of Haringey

The responsibilities of the Office of Government Commerce include promoting and maintaining the procurement policy and legal framework. However, responsibility and accountability for individual procurements and the procurement routes used are delegated to departmental accounting officers.

In preparing my answer on 22 May, the Office of Government Commerce, Department of Health and HM Treasury were consulted.
