Description: The NOMS Agency Framework Agreement includes a commitment to ensure that the organisation engages in effective and efficient commissioning practices that include the stimulation of market activity to assure best value is obtained through its delegated resources. Competition in prisons has been used to deliver multiple objectives: increases in capacity, value-for-money, service/performance improvement, productivity and innovation. Competition has led to service improvement by management teams motivated by competition. Competition has also generated improvements in productivity, with flatter, leaner management structures, reduced sickness leave and a more mobile workforce. On the 13th July 2011 the Secretary of State announced that nine prison establishments in the second round of Prison Competitions. The establishments chosen for competition are: • Lot 1 - HMP Acklington & HMP/YOI Castington (now HMP Northumberland) • Lot 2 - HMP Coldingley • Lot 3 - HMP Durham • Lot 4 - HMP/YOI Hatfield & HMP/IRC Lindholme & HMP/YOI Moorland • Lot 5 - HMP/YOI Onley • Lot 6 - HMP Wolds OJEU was published in October 2011.
