Two years ago, Pamela Cook, MD of Infoshare was invited by the Cabinet Office to be part of its Scrutiny Panel.  This report  Making Government business more accessible to SMEs  – Two Years Onshows that steady progress is being made towards the Government’s 25% aspiration whilst recognising the barriers we need to tackle to continue to open up opportunities for SME suppliers. 

“When I was invited to be a part of the Scrutiny Panel I felt it represented another real example of how seriously the Government is taking the SME agenda. Involving group members suggested to me that it was a joint effort without barriers and demonstrated a clear and evidence driven approach to evaluation and open comment. I was really pleased to be invited and I felt that my voice was being heard.”
