Scottish Government Procurement Strategy 2017-2019

This strategy outlines our policies on how we conduct our procurement activity and the priorities we have.

6. Annual procurement report

Under the Procurement Reform (Scotland) Act 2014 we have to prepare a procurement report each year. Our first report will cover the period 1 January 2017 to 31 March 2018.

It will include, as a minimum:

  • information on regulated procurements that we have completed during the period;
  • a review of whether those procurements kept to our procurement strategy;
  • if any procurements do not keep to regulations, a statement of how we intend to make sure that they do in future;
  • a summary of community benefit requirements set as part of a regulated procurement that we met during the financial year covered by the report;
  • a summary of any steps we have taken to involve businesses we support in regulated procurements during the year; and
  • a summary of regulated procurements we expect to begin in the next two financial years.

We will publish our report online and make sure it is accessible in a variety of formats.
