Suppliers' Charter

To ensure equality and transparency, Scottish Water has signed up to the Scottish Government’s Suppliers’ Charter, which it fully endorses and supports. The Charter details the Policies and Procedures promoted by the Public Procurement Reform Programme with respect to supporting all current and potential Suppliers.

Both public sector procurement and business accept that effective procurement practices are an important factor in ensuring a varied and competitive marketplace and creating opportunities for Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs), as well as ensuring Best Value/Value for Money for the public sector. Scottish Water recognises the need, where practical, to simplify and standardise processes and to ensure consistency in order to provide a fair and open approach to tendering.
