Public Procurement and Property

Tell us your views on the public procurement system in Scotland

November 1, 2021 by No Comments | Category Scottish Procurement, survey

Public procurement in Scotland is #OpenAndConnected.

Your views will help organisations to gain better access, compete for and deliver public contracts.

We have asked Blake Stevenson, a social research company, to gather feedback about third-sector organisations’ and new private sector businesses’ experiences of the public procurement system in Scotland. The research will inform future development of public procurement processes, ensuring that it is as inclusive as possible.

The research will inform our next steps around the delivery of public procurement in Scotland. By helping us to ensure that the widest range of businesses and organisations are able to do business with the Scottish public sector on an even footing with other suppliers.

Your views will help the researchers to develop evidence-based recommendations and action points. So that the Scottish Government and wider public sector can achieve that goal. Click here to view a copy of the PDF flyer

If you are:

  • a third-sector organisation
  • a new private business (set up less than five years ago)

Then we would like to hear from you. You do not need to have experience of bidding for public sector contracts to take part in the research.

Participation involves taking part in a short telephone/online interview where the research team will ask you about your experiences and views of the procurement system.

If you would like to take part in the research, or if you require any more information, please contact Lena at Blake Stevenson using the details below:
