Progress with Procurement Reform
The Scottish Government has published a ‘suite’ of statutory guidance on public procurement under the Procurement Reform (Scotland) Act 2014.
Procurement can and should be used to extend the Living Wage, address fair work practices, help public bodies contribute to Scotland’s climate targets and promote ethical & fair trade and positive social outcomes.
Although progress is being made, the changes could go further to ensure that public money is being used to promote a socially and environmentally just society.
