Common standards make common sense

The new post of CSPL's blog discusses the provision of public services by third-party providers and the need for them to observe common ethical standards.

In our third blog post our Chair discusses the provision of public services by private and voluntary organisations and explains that the public have a clear expectation that all providers - from whatever sector- should observe common ethical standards.

Drawing from our recent report Ethical Standards for Providers of Public Services and research commissioned by the Committee and conducted by Ipsos MORI, Lord Bew discusses the relevance of the Seven Principles of Public Life to all those delivering public services on behalf of the taxpayer and the importance of making sure that expected ethical considerations are made explicit in the commissioning process.
