Calculation of the National Costs and Savings of Compulsory Competitive Tendering

Produced as a supplement to the Full Report The Gender Impact of CCT in Local Government, this paper focuses on the public costs of CCT and provides a detailed analysis of the costs and savings of CCT using published government sources. It developed a model of income and expenditure flows for central and local government and demonstrated that there were no savings from CCT but there was in fact a net cost to the government.
