Procurement transparency and annual reports

We are committed to being more transparent about how we spend public money and improving accountability, by publishing information about our procurement activity.

This is in line with our Open Contracting Strategy.


We also regularly publish information about what we spend, including:

Monitoring performance

We produce a public procurement in Scotland workplan which is reported against twice a year.

Public bodies need to publish annual procurement reports that describe how their procurements have complied with the Public Procurement Strategy for Scotland. More information on how annual procurement reports will be used to monitor progress on cross-public sector alignment to the Public Procurement Strategy for Scotland can be found here.

Each of Scotland's four procurement Centres of Expertise also publishes an annual report covering their respective sector.

They also produce a collaborative forward plan of procurement opportunities which is updated monthly.

We have produced a factsheet explaining the governance structure of public procurement in Scotland.
