To ask the Scottish Government how many public contracts were placed with supported employment workplaces for disabled people through its procurement process and what their value was in each year since 2011.

The Scottish Government Framework for Supported Factories and Businesses was awarded in September 2012.

The number of contracts placed from financial year 2011-2012, via Public Contract Scotland (PCS) prior to the Framework Agreement is 17. As referred to in the answer to question S4W-14309 on 26 April 2013.

Since 2012, spend and orders placed through the Framework Agreement across all Scottish sectors (Central Government, Health, Education, Local Authority and Charities), has totalled £1.9m. Orders placed totalled 389, with a sectoral breakdown provided in the following tables. However, those figures do not include any public contracts placed with supported businesses by public bodies outwith the Scottish Government framework.
