What is collaborative procurement?

The importance attached to collaborative procurement is a direct result of the Public Sector Procurement Reform Programme. Collaborative procurement is about achieving value for money for the Scottish public sector through partnership working between buying organisations, Centres of Expertise (CoEs) and suppliers. We will draw on expertise across the public sector to leverage volumes and secure benefits from economies of scale through harnessing combined sector purchasing power.
