The Scottish government has just launched a consultation to help shape the Scottish Procurement Reform Bill. Its aim is to establish a national legislative framework for sustainable public procurement that supports Scotland's economic growth by delivering social and environmental benefits, supporting innovation and promoting public procurement processes and systems which are transparent, streamlined, standardised, proportionate, fair and business-friendly.
There is an excellent opportunity for CIPS as the professional body to have a say on Scottish legislation and embed good procurement practice.
Scotland is also about to launch a national review of procurement in Construction so we are looking to CIPS members in the Construction Industry to comment on the Scottish Procurement Reform Bill placing CIPS at the centre of two very visible, high ministerial priorities in Scotland.
Please contact Head of Global Public Procurement Peter James - email@example.com to receive necessary paperwork by 21st October 2012.
