Procurement Reform Bill - UNISON Scotland Policy Briefing 27

UNISON Scotland Policy Briefing 27 - Procurement Reform Bill

The Scottish Government is consulting on its Procurement Reform Bill. UNISON's policy briefing is available online:

Key points
  • The SNP 2011 manifesto promised a Sustainable Procurement Bill but the new proposal is weak on sustainability, focusing more on ‘business-friendly’ processes.
  • However, it is a good opportunity to strengthen ways in which procurement can encourage important economic, social and environmental benefits, longstanding trade union priorities.
  • This should include extending the Living Wage to contractors.
