II.1.3)Type of contract
The Office for National Statistics (‘ONS’) has a requirement to procure specialist data collection services to support the delivery of a new Services Turnover Survey (‘Servcom’) to better measure the services sector of the UK economy.
An independent review of UK economic statistics conducted by Sir Charles Bean (March, 2016), highlighted the need to further develop the measurement of the UK service economy. The service economy accounted for roughly 80 % of the UK economy in 2015; however, the breakdown of the sales in the services industries is far less detailed than the production industries, which only accounted for roughly 10 % in 2015. The Servcom survey will provide a detailed product level breakdown of service industry output.
