Scottish Government’s Pay Supplement Policy applicable to procurement posts: FOI review

Information request and response under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002.

Information requested

Details of the Scottish Government's policy on Procurement pay supplements.


I have concluded that the original response did not include all of the information requested. Previously you were sent a copy of the Pay Supplement Guidance for Scottish Government Main Bargaining Unit. This does cover procurement supplements and gives important information on how they are applied in Scottish Government, specifically with reference to the Council of Scottish Government Union's involvement in the approval of supplements.

However, additional information specifically related to procurement supplements was omitted from the response. Please accept our apologies for this, the additional information was held by the Procurement Profession and not the central team who handled your original request. This error will not be repeated in future.

I enclose a copy of the Procurement Pay Supplement Guidance you requested.
