The Scottish Government Procurement Strategy outlines our policies on how we conduct our procurement activity and the priorities we have.

Executive Summary

This strategy sets out our procurement policies and priorities when we buy goods, services and works on behalf of Scottish Ministers.

Our involvement in public procurement

is far broader than buying to meet our own requirements.

As well as procuring goods and services on

behalf of Scottish Ministers, we also procure

for the public sector and other organisations in


We also provide a range of procurement

support to Scottish Government agencies and

non-departmental public bodies (NDPBs). In

doing so, we work with the public sector, the

third sector (supported businesses, social firms,

voluntary and charity organisations), trade

unions, businesses and communities, and other

key stakeholders (people with an interest in our

work) to help deliver the economic strategy.
