LORD FREUD!! We will not tolerate lying

This is the definitive hot off the press statement from Lord FREUD at the ALP conference this morning!!


“everyone pulled into the framework then there will be short competitions for short specific contracts.

“The framework can be used by anyone so we will have a structure of great flexibility that the state can use. We have not spoke to other departments as yet but what we have is the architecture”

Graham Hoyle we have a good outline of an outline framework. Pleased about the re-emphasis of the black box and hope that our members will be involved in this process.

FREUD. Website has been setup and it will be sent to delegates after conference.

Graham Hoyle Our members have been worried about the big PRIMES and there is a worry around how the SFA will operate. We are pleased that the Minister [Lord Freud] is aware of what the PRIMES are doing and that they are making good use of providers and their expertise.

FREUD. We will not tolerate lying if you say you have a consortium. We would be very intolerant of lying


Question: There are still questions around skills and how it will be paid for…. PRIMES will not pay for this.

Freud: If we get the pricing RIGHT and UP [IF] there is substantial money to go into this!!

Hoyle: We welcome the development of a framework that has the potential to be used, we are not sure if it’s the right one but we are supportive and will look at it. (Open minded)

Paul Warner: Who are you inviting to get onto the framework?

FREUD: Those who are going to be in CHARGE of the consortium!!

Let’s look at a region: You get into a region then there will be a competition later for which you set up your consortium but you need to get your main body up NOW.

We are also interested in other arrangements, ie consortium approach, or a group which have capital and could assemble others beneath that capital.

It is the leadership element of the consortium that we need to put onto the framework!!

Supply chains need to be set up and negotiated now!!
