Third sector organisations asked for views on Scottish Public Procurement

02 Dec 2021

The Scottish Government has commissioned Blake Stevenson Ltd., an independent research company, to investigate the views and experiences of third sector organisations and new private sector companies, in relation to public procurement in Scotland.

In their definition of ‘third sector organisations’, they include charities, social enterprises and voluntary groups. By ‘new’ private sector companies, they mean companies set up within the last 5 years.

You may have recently bid for a public contract (either as the lead or as part of a consortium) or may have decided not to for a variety of reasons. In either of these cases, the Scottish Government are interested in your views.

The survey is open until 21 December 2021. The Scottish Government have published a blog to provide some more information.
