To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office, for what reason his Department has not published the data on Cabinet Office prompt payment for (a) the third and second quarter of the 2017-2018 financial year and (b) the first and second quarter of the 2018-2019 financial year under procurement policy.

Cabinet Office moved to a new shared service platform in May 2017, which required a significant volume of complex data transfer between the old and new platforms. A number of issues were identified which called into question the accuracy of payment performance data, so the Department suspended prompt payment reporting until assured data was available. This has now been achieved, and we plan to publish the outstanding data shortly.
