Public Works Advisory, Department of ...

The findings of the review reveal long‐standing and significant weaknesses in contract management at the Department. It recommends that swift action be taken in order to secure necessary improvements and to narrow the gap between current and best practice across a wide range of key component activities. However, it must also be recognised that, in conducting this review, a focus has been placed on those high‐risk and high‐value contracts where the MoJ believed it most likely that issues would be uncovered and therefore the findings of this sample are likely to appear starker than if a full assessment of every contract held by MoJ had been conducted. Equally, the review has uncovered a number of risk areas but this is not to say that these risks would have materialised. Rather, it is important that the Department ensures that enhanced processes are in place to provide assurance and to manage and mitigate these risks.
