Links I Liked [Public Procurement]

1. Institute for Government claims the UK Government is no longer making progress on contract transparency.

2. Claims that workers on public procurement projects are being paid well below the minimum wage (in French).

3. US Military loses track of $800M in a procurement project in Afghanistan.

4. Tech UK's views on the Government's Digital Service new Digital Outcomes and Specialists framework.

5. Open Contracting Partnership proposes new framework to make procurement more responsive. A very simple idea being put forward but one I am very supportive. There is nothing like starting with the end goal/job to be done by the contract and working backwards.
