Promise of £10 billion savings from stationery
"Francis Maude, the Cabinet Office minister, will today set out plans to centralise the procurement of supplies and other items across Whitehall.
"It comes after the government's procurement guru, Sir Philip Green, recommended centralised buying in his 2010 review of government spending.
"Mr Maude said that the new system would put an end to absurd disparities in the prices Whitehall departments and agencies pay for everyday items.
"The minister accepted that the previous government made similar promises of major efficiency savings without significant results, but insisted that the Coalition has the will to succeed where Labour failed."
