Across Scotland a programme of Public Sector procurement reform is currently underway. Detailed information on this programme can be found on the Scottish Government: Procurement website. The Council has developed our procurement processes in line with this programme of reform.
The Council's vision for procurement is:
"To achieve commercial excellence in our procurement activities and ensure that we deliver Best Value services to the communities of Perth and Kinross. To do so in an effective, efficient, ethical and sustainable way that delivers local economic, environmental and social benefits"
The following pages have been designed to provide our business partners and other interested parties with information and advice on procurement processes used to deliver contracts on behalf of Perth & Kinross Council.
Public sector reform of procurement has also led to a number of collaborative arrangements being put in place across Scotland. These include Scottish Procurement having let a number of national contracts open to all public bodies, Scotland Excel the Centre of Procurement Expertise for Scotland's local government sector, and The Tayside Procurement Consortium which is a local collaboration across the Tayside placing contracts on behalf of Angus Council, Dundee City Council and Perth & Kinross Council.
