Crown Representatives help the government to act as a single customer. They work across departments to:

  • ensure a single and strategic view of the government’s needs is communicated to the market;

  • identify areas for cost savings or operational improvements;

  • act as a point of focus for cross-cutting supplier-related issues.

Crown Representatives cover all sectors of service provision including small and medium enterprises, voluntary sector organisations, mutually owned organisations, large suppliers and specific sectors. All Crown Representatives complete Conflict of Interest declarations every six months.

Information about the Crown Representative programme, including a list of the current Crown Representatives and strategic suppliers is available on GOV.UK here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/strategic-suppliers

We will write to the hon. Member with further information and place a copy of the letter in the House Library.
