The Department has switched its gas and electricity supplier on a number of occasions over the last 10 years. The latest change of supplier has taken place from 1 April 2012.

This latest change of supplier was organised through a framework with the Government Procurement Service (GPS). All GPS frameworks are awarded on the basis of a fully competitive process governed by Official Journal of the European Union rules. Under Cabinet Office guidance, GPS is also the recognised provider for all central Government energy supplies. The latest changes of suppliers have been as follows:

Gas from Total Gas and Power to Corona;

Electricity Non Half Hourly for Scottish and Southern Energy to British Gas; and

Half Hourly from Scottish and Southern Energy to EDF Energy.
