Procurement Policy

Public sector spending on goods and services across Scotland, in areas such as health and education services, amounts to over £10bn per year. Procurement guidelines and legislation govern the purchasing of these goods and services.

The Public Procurement Reform Programme (PPRP) aims to drive up procurement standards ensuring value for money for the taxpayer.
