Updated guidance on Fair Work First in Procurement SPPN 1/2024

April 18, 2024 by No Comments | Category Fair Work, Scottish Procurement, Scottish Procurement Policy Note

We have published a new Scottish Procurement Policy note, SPPN 1/2024. This policy note supersedes previous advice contained in SPPN 6/2021 – Fair Work First implementation.

Fair Work First in Procurement policy has been in place since September 2021 and this refreshed guidance has been published to support the implementation of that policy. It builds on statutory guidance published in May 2022 and is hosted on the Sustainable Procurement Tools platform.

It is designed to support public bodies to implement Fair Work First through their procurement activities and includes model questions as well as a new table of definitions and intended benefits for each of the seven Fair Work First criteria.
