Collaborative procurement is about achieving value for money for the Scottish public sector through partnership working between buying organisations, the four Procurement Centres of Expertise (CoEs) and suppliers.
Our contracts deliver a wide range of economic benefits as well as significant financial savings for the public sector.
Our contracting activity covers three main areas:
- contracts for Scottish Government use only
- sectoral collaborative frameworks - let by the Scottish Government for use by the central government family or organisations which includes agencies and non-departmental public bodes
- national collaborative frameworks and contracts - for commonly purchased goods and services which are used across the public sector
The contracts and frameworks awarded have a combined value of £800 million per year. They can be used by public organisations across Scotland and cover a range of goods and services.
We publish a forward plan of our national and central government sector collaborative opportunities on the Public Contracts Scotland website.
