Public procurement - project delivery training framework: buyer's guide

Buyer's guide for the project delivery framework.

About this framework

The Framework Agreement

The Scottish Government is continuing to strengthen project delivery understanding and capacity. 

This framework agreement provides accredited/certified programme and project delivery learning. The framework is an integral part of development interventions to build project delivery capability within that wider context. The framework is aligned to the Scottish Government’s programme and project management principles ensuring that the learning opportunities best support the learning outcomes of the staff attending.

The current iteration of the framework seeks to go beyond the classroom based sessions. It engages the supplier to provide ongoing support and development to the learner, helping embed and contextualise their new skills as part of the standard price. Thus ensuring knowledge into practice and greater value for money for the organisations covered by the framework.


This buyer’s guide provides guidance to public sector organisations on accessing and utilising the Project Delivery Training framework.

Scottish Procurement aims to deliver benefits to the people of Scotland through improved value for money for taxpayers, improved goods and services for all our citizens and economic opportunities for Scotland. 

The agreement commenced on 7 November 2023 and will run for a period of three years with a single supplier, Elite Training & Consultancy, with the option to extend for a further period of one year. 


The Project Delivery Training framework is available for:

  • call-off contract - booking on an open course – for example, course run by the provider open to or accessible by the public
  • closed course – run exclusively for the framework body
  • bespoke courses – courses specifically designed and delivered for the framework body
