Our procurement team is a central finance function which:

  • works alone or, where possible, with other organisations to deliver products or services
  • continues to develop our procurement policy
  • provides support and advises our staff

Our principal objectives are to ensure that we:

  • follow best procurement practice
  • get best value for money
  • meet all relevant legal requirements

Where possible, we look for opportunities to work with other organisations to establish collaborative contracts and take advantage of additional efficiencies. We currently use contracts let by the Scottish government and the Crown Commercial Service (CCS).

We've recently published our annual procurement report for 2022 - 2023.
