The Sourcing Playbook, Government Guidance on service delivery, including outsourcing, insourcing, mixed economy sourcing and contracting, was produced by the Cabinet Office and published in May 2021. The Sourcing playbook emphasises that the delivery of public services is a collaborative endeavour involving colleagues from commercial, finance, project delivery, policy and other professions. It proposes to capture best practices from across the Government within 11 key policies that all central departments are expected to follow.
Critical suppliers is a concept that is identified in the Sourcing playbook as a key term. According to the Sourcing playbook, ‘Critical suppliers are providers of critical service contracts. Critical suppliers are required to provide resolution planning information.’
