Case Study: The Moray Council
In the Scottish Public Sector, spending on works, goods and services has reached in excess of £10 billion a year. The Scottish Government has made considerable progress over the last few years to address some of the most common issues facing buyers and suppliers in public procurement. This is directly linked to the strategic outcome of a wealthier and fairer Scotland.
Moray Council, one of the 32 Local Government council areas of Scotland, is committed to delivering high-quality, cost-effective services to the Moray community and taxpayer. Like all councils, it has been facing a challenging financial situation. 12 months ago, it took the decision to fully adopt PCSTender (which links to PCS- Advertising portal) to support it in spending public money more effectively, bring full transparency of the end-to-end internal procurement process and to ensure a fair, visible and less complex process for suppliers.
The challenge: Using PCS-Tender to build on the “centralized procurement operation” to achieve a fully transparent and collaborative working model.
