On 1st March 2017 the Second Church Estates Commissioner, Dame Caroline Spelman MP, answered two written questions from Jon Trickett MP about the membership of the Churches Mutual Credit Union and procurement procedures in the Church Commissioners.
Jon Trickett MP (Hemsworth): To ask the right hon. Member for Meriden, representing the Church Commissioners, how many Church Commissioners’ staff oversee contracts which have been awarded to external providers. (64993)
Dame Caroline Spelman: The Church Commissioners external contracts are managed either in partnership with the other National Church Institutions through shared office services schemes or by the Corporation of Church House, who manage the building.
Those that fall specifically within the remit of the Church Commissioners are largely located within the Investments Department, who have five members of staff who oversee external contracts within the property investment team and seven members of staff in the investments team.
Church Commissioners: Procurement
Jon Trickett MP (Hemsworth): To ask the right hon. Member for Meriden, representing the Church Commissioners, what the procurement spend of Church Commissioners was in each year since 2010. (65678)
Dame Caroline Spelman: Information relating to the Church Commissioners procurement spend for the 2010-2016 are not held centrally and could only be provided at disproportionate cost.
