Annex B: Micro, small and medium-sized suppliers supplying goods and services to core Scottish Government 

Analysis 

The following tables provide information on SME suppliers, by (a) micro, (b) small and (c) medium-sized suppliers, who have supplied goods and services to core Scottish Government during the period 2017 to 2020. This information is based on data contained in the Scottish Procurement Information Hub (the “Hub”). 

The total number of SME suppliers may vary in some years from previous publications. This is because the data held in the Hub is revalidated and may change as additional information about suppliers is applied, or as supplier status changes.
