Scottish Procurement Policy Notes (SPPNs)

SPPNs provide advice to public sector organisations and other relevant bodies on procurement policy.

These were written at a given point in time and, while the majority of principles, guidance and individual references to legislation, web links etc. will still be relevant some of these might also have been superseded. This means some caution shoud be exercised when reading them.

The Procurement Journey website is the main source of procurement best practice guidance for use by the Scottish public sector. It provides the most up-to-date source of information on many of the subjects covered by the SPPNs.

If you are in any doubt about a specific subject matter you should refer to the Procurement Journey in the first instance.

Thereafter, any other questions about individual SPPNs should be directed to Scottish Procurement, using the contact details at the bottom of this page.
