Single-speaker Transcript:

Our latest report for Scottish Government procurement shows how we’re performing against our Procurement Strategy and leading by example – through delivering procurement policy and capability.

We, the Scottish Government, provide contracts and frameworks which are used across the public sector, contributing to the economy and providing savings. Over £145 million of savings were made through our contracts.

In 2022 to 2023 public sector bodies spent over £1.3 billion through these national contracts and frameworks.

Of the £637 million spent with suppliers, over £380 million went to SMEs and 95% of our suppliers committed to paying the real Living Wage.

We provide the free platform Public Contracts Scotland, which was used to advertise over 14,000 new contract opportunities resulting in over 18,000 suppliers winning contracts.

As well as supporting existing jobs our contracts enabled the creation of 177 brand-new jobs, 69 apprenticeships and 312 work placements.

As we continue our Just Transition to a net zero economy, we want procurement to be Good for businesses and their employees, Good for Society, Good for places and communities and Open and Connected.

This report showcases the real Power of Procurement.
