Description: The original Commercial Capability Programme successfully established the Government Commercial Organisation (GCO) - a single central employer of several hundred Commercial Specialists (grade 6 and above) for central government departments. The Civil Service Board has endorsed proposals that commercial capability building interventions should be extended to Wider Government Bodies (WGBs), the Grade 7 commercial professionals within central government and training and accreditation developed and delivered to the Civil Service contract management community. The Commercial Capability Expansion Programme has been established to impact these new target populations deeper within the Civil Service and more broadly across the Public Sector.
