Building and Construction Procurement

Note: The Construction Manual requires review and update in light of new legislation. While it reflects the general process, references to specific legislation and templates may no longer be current.


The Scottish Government aims to promote value for money and quality in the delivery of its public buildings and its projects and programmes. Construction Procurement Policy (CPP) provides leadership and direction for securing value for money and best practice in construction procurement policy and procedures.

CPP also develops, maintains and promotes the Construction Procurement Manual which applies mandatory policy and procedures to Scottish Government Directorates, Agencies, associated departments and many other sponsored bodies.
