Crown Commercial Service chief Sally Collier set to move to Ofqual
Crown Commercial Service chief executive Sally Collier has been named as the government's preferred candidate to become chief regulator at exams watchdog Ofqual.
Collier has served in the top job at the Cabinet Office agency in charge of government procurement since 2014. Prior to that, she served in senior roles at CCS's predecessors the Government Procurement Service and the Office of Government Commerce.
Her planned move to Ofqual, the non-ministerial department regulating qualifications and exams in England, was revealed in a letter from education secretary Nicky Morgan to MPs on the education select committee, published on Tuesday.
Morgan said Collier was her preferred candidate to succeed Glenys Stacey, who left Ofqual at the end of February.
She added: "Sally has significant experience in the complex environment of public procurement and in leading and managing large teams through periods of significant change. She is experienced in building deep and productive relationships in the public and private sectors."
Collier's appointment will now be subject to approval from the select committee. The exams regulator is currently being led by Ofqual's chair, Amanda Spielman, on an interim basis.
