To ask the Scottish Government which bodies have been its strategic suppliers in each year since 2007-08.
Answered by: Derek Mackay 21 February 2018
The Scottish Government have contracted with a large number of suppliers over the past 10 years and a large number of contracts have expired since
2007-8. The current list of suppliers providing services/goods to the core Scottish Government where we are implementing a strategic approach are:
Remploy Employment Services
The Shaw Trust
The Wise Group
Bravo Solution UK
We also strategically manage a wide range of collaborative contracts that are available to be used across the Scottish Public Sector, i.e. Scottish Government, Executive Agencies, NDPBs, Local Authorities, NHS bodies, Universities and Colleges.
The list of suppliers can be found in our collaborative contracts directory: http://www.gov.scot/Topics/Government/Procurement/directory
In addition the Scottish Government works with the United Kingdom Cabinet Office to support the strategic management of key suppliers who operate across the UK.
