Open and connected
We focus on the shared purpose at the heart of the national performance framework.
- We are therefore 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 continue to operate across organisational boundaries to deliver trusted public services, effectively managing within our collective resources.
- We've made publication of a procurement strategy and annual report a requirement for any public body spending more than £5 million per year.
- Our processes are open and transparent with access to fair resolution through the Single Point of Enquiry. This offers an independent, impartial and confidential service for businesses which have concerns about a procurement exercise carried out by any Scottish public body.
By doing this, we will advance our place on the world stage to demonstrate Scotland at its best. You can also watch our video explaining the open and connected outcome.
