The Department has a small and medium-sized enterprises (SME) Action Plan to achieve its SME target of 23% of procurement spend going to SMEs by March 2022. The calculation and validation process for the proportion of spend on SMEs across different procurement categories for each closed financial year is usually undertaken and reported on in August of the following financial year, so information on this spend is not yet available for 2019/20.
