This hub will be your one stop shop to find out more about the Government Commercial Function (GCF) and the Contract Management Capability Programme (CMCP).
The GCF is leading commercial reforms in central government with the vision to be the best commercial function in the UK. We deliver this through a selection of first-class services ranging from assessment to talent and development programmes for new entrants to senior commercial staff. The GCF leads on commercial policy, commercial capability, complex transactions, continuous improvement and strategic supplier relationships for government.
