We are delighted to be working once again with the following leading organisations as event partners of Procurex Scotland
We have a dedicated team who work closely with our strategic partners in Scotland to provide effective collaboration across the whole of the Scottish public sector and third sector and to ensure our commercial agreements meet the needs of our customers by taking account of local policy and legislation.
The public sector spends over £11 billion a year on goods and services across the public sector. This provides an excellent platform to work with the public, private and third sectors to “deliver procurement that improves public services for a prosperous, fairer and more sustainable Scotland.”
Public procurement is a key partner and enabler to deliver Scotland’s economic strategy. We invest in our people, infrastructure and assets in a sustainable way, encourage innovation, and promote inclusive growth
Legislation has re-enforced the principles of the Scottish Model of Procurement. It maintains the ethos of the public procurement reform programme – business friendly, socially responsible procurement that delivers better outcomes for Scotland.
Our public procurement contracts are amongst the most accessible in the world for micro, small and medium size organisations. We are providing opportunities for Scotland’s small and medium sized enterprises and third sector organisations to benefit through public sector business both domestically and in other countries.
