Section 10 - Provision of information and advice to the SPC by public procurement subgroup

38.This section sets out the functions of the public procurement subgroup which are to provide information or advice to the SPC about the functions placed on contracting authorities and the Welsh Ministers under the socially responsible procurement duties set out in Part 3 of the Act. If the Welsh Ministers request information or advice from the SPC about such matters, the SPC must seek this from the public procurement subgroup and provide it to the Welsh Ministers as soon as reasonably practicable.

39.In addition, this section provides for the revision of information and advice by the SPC, before it is sent to the Welsh Ministers.

40.Where the Welsh Ministers consult the SPC subgroup under sections 30 or 36 of the Act, the public procurement subgroup must provide information and advice that it considers appropriate as soon as reasonably practicable.

41.The Welsh Ministers may consult directly with the public procurement subgroup under sections 30(2)(d) or 36(2)(d) (that is in relation to notifications provided by contracting authorities in connection with social public works clauses received under section 29 or social public workforce clauses received under section 35), in which event the public procurement subgroup must provide the information or advice as soon as reasonably practicable.
