- What evidence is there that PQQs really work?
- What do PQQs set out to achieve - and what do they actually achieve?
- How do PQQs skew the market place - and do they skew in the direction of better value for the taxpayer or not?
- Who are the best a) Government and b) Private sector procurers?
- What can we learn from these organisations (assuming we know how to identify 'best')?
- What does good procurement look like? (I had my stab at this before - see here)
- As a method of managing the scale of the task (of identifying the few key suppliers who can do an effective and economic job) - what options apart from PQQs are available?
- If PQQs and Framework contracts are going out of fashion - what are the best tools to replace them with?
- Do PQQs result in the best suppliers being selected to do a job, or do PQQs tend to select those who are just very good at... writing PQQs?
I would be genuinely interested in what other suppliers think but especially what do clients and procurers think about my questions? Do you have any answers?
