Implementation of Fair Work First in Scottish Public Procurement SPPN 3/2021
We have published a new Scottish Procurement Policy note, SPPN 3/2021 advises public bodies how to implement Fair Work First (FWF) criteria in their procurements.
For procurement processes commencing on 1 April 2021, public bodies are expected to apply the 5 FWF criteria, if relevant and proportionate to the procurement exercise.
To support this, SPPN 3/2021 has good practice examples of what the five criteria can mean in practice and an example Fair Work First question that can be used in Invitations to Tender.
