Home / About us / Procurement


The Procurement (Scotland) Act 2014 came into effect in April 2016 and one of the requirements of the Act is that RSLs which expect to have significant procurement expenditure (defined as £5 million) in the next financial year must prepare and publish a procurement strategy by 31 December 2016 covering the remainder of the financial year, and the following financial year till 31 March 2018.

The Strategy sets out how we will direct our external spend on goods, services and works to meet statutory and good practice requirements, to achieve savings and to deliver wider local economic, environmental and social benefits for our community. It also sets out how our procurement activity will contribute to carrying out the Association’s functions, how it will deliver value for money and how it will contribute to meeting the general duties described in the Act.
