The Home Affairs Committee concludes that with the current financial pressures on the Home Office and the increased public scrutiny of bonuses it is irresponsible of the Home Office to continue to pay staff bonuses, with a total value of GBP6,524,712.18, despite poor performance in many areas. Mark Sedwill, the Permanent Secretary, has shown leadership by not taking a bonus for this year. Another finding is that the current picture of police procurement is dismal. The Home Office is relying on it to deliver much of its financial savings but it is hopelessly fragmented, and the Home Office itself has only the sketchiest idea of what is going on. The Government should issue detailed guidance to Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs) and Chief Constables about good procurement practice. Home Office procurement arrangements should also be made more efficient and open. The current near oligopoly caused by monolithic contracts should be broken and the deals split into smaller arrangements immediately. The engagement and confidence in the leadership of the Civil Service in the Home Office is at crisis levels and needs to be addressed as a matter of urgency.
