Keith Vaz: To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster (1) which stakeholders are consulted in the process of deciding a supplier to the Cultural Diversity Framework and Approved Supplier List; 
The Cultural Diversity Framework was set up in accordance with the Public Contracts Regulations 2006. The framework was advertised in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU) using the restricted procedure, in trade journals and on Central Office of Informations (COI) buyer profile.
Suppliers wishing to be on the framework were directed to the pre-qualification questionnaire (PQQ). Suppliers were required to complete the PQQ, which was available for 30 days after publishing. The PQQs were then scored and evaluated against the published award criteria.
Successful suppliers were invited to the next stage where they were provided with a fictitious brief. Suppliers were given 40 days in which to complete the brief and were asked to pitch at their own premises as part of a site visit. This was also scored and evaluated against published award criteria.
Those successful at this stage were assessed as to whether they had shown capability to deliver services under each of the published lots and labels, and were given the opportunity to sit on the framework.
The Approved Supplier List was advertised on the Supply2Gov website, in trade journals and COIs buyer profile. Potential suppliers were required to complete a PQQ, which was available for 30 days after publishing. The PQQs were then scored and evaluated against the published award criteria.
Successful suppliers were asked to present case study examples at their premises, which were scored and evaluated against the published award criteria. The framework renewal teams recommendations were agreed and signed off by the COI director of news and PR.
Although no stakeholders were directly involved with the process of selecting suppliers for the Cultural Diversity Framework and Approved Supplier List, the COI undertakes regular formal and informal discussions with a wide variety of those stakeholders during its normal business activities, including the issue of how the framework should be structured and the types of supplier that are needed.
