Major public-sector suppliers to draft ‘living wills’ as part of post-Carillion outsourcing approach

All major public services providers “will have to draw up ‘living wills’ determining what would happen if they go bust as part of the government’s post-Carillion approach to outsourcing.” The government will pitch this idea first to five key companies: Serco, Capita, Sopra Steria, Engie and Interserve. Cabinet Office minister David Lidington told the Business Services Association that “we are professionalising our contract management through accreditation of all government contract managers and from today an estimated 30,000 civil servants across central government will have access to new online contract management training.”


The demise of Carillion “created an unprecedented situation" for the Royal Liverpool Hospital

A Private Financing Initiative hospital contract worth £335 million ($441 million; €374.8 million) has been terminated and brought into public ownership following the collapse of Carillion. The demise of Carillion “‘created an unprecedented situation with numerous complex legal and commercial issues’ for the Royal Liverpool Hospital, the Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals Trust said in a statement. The PFI contract will now enter a ‘managed termination process’ whereby the concession company will hand over its contracts for construction, supply chain and facilities management to the local NHS trust over the next few months so construction can be completed.”
