    Public Procurement in Scotland Report and
    Recommendations, by John McClelland. This
    report included almost 80 recommendations to
    improve procurement in the Public Sector.

The Programmes Objectives
  • To facilitate public bodies in improving their
    procurement capabilities in order to support
    delivery of better public services
  • To increase the cost-effectiveness of
    procurement, thereby releasing cash for use in
    other priority areas. This includes the use of
    eProcurement. The savings targets included in
    the McClelland Report amount to 600m in 2009-10
    and will be delivered primarily through more
    effective collaborative purchasing
  • To establish and embed appropriate procurement
    policy and best practice in order to ensure fair
    and efficient procurement practices and reduce
    commercial risk and
  • To facilitate cross sector collaboration to avoid
    duplication of effort, maximise potential gains
    from collaboration, enable the sharing of
    experience and information and to ensure that
    common suppliers and markets are managed
  • To encourage suppliers to build effective and
    mutually beneficial relationships with the
    Scottish Public Sector
  • The Programmes scope and objectives have been
    described in the Programme Initiation Document
    (PID), which is available on the Scottish
    Procurement Directorates website.
