Information requested

Following your review of the Scottish Government Annual Procurement report you asked “what would be much more relevant and revealing would be the split in terms of contracts awarded to Small businesses (under 50 employees) here in Scotland, (relative to the Medium sized as well as those larger entities that still account for the other 40% it would seem by extrapolation). 

Have you got that analysis or not, and if so where can I locate that information, but if not why not?”
