SFHA/SPA Strategic Partnership

The joint working saw the creation of the Procurement Advisory Service which improved public value through better understanding and implementation of Scottish procurement regulations.

SFHA has been working with the Scottish Procurement Alliance (SPA) since its formation in 2016.

The joint working saw the creation of the Procurement Advisory Service which improved public value through better understanding and implementation of Scottish procurement regulations. SPA provided the financial backing so that SFHA members could access the service free of charge

This service included an enquiry function, guidance, seminars and workshops, and procurement roadshow events throughout Scotland. Ninety per cent of RSLs throughout the country interacted with the service, and over 1,000 individuals utilised it.

Lesley Anderson, SPA Head of Procurement, said: “Since 2016, we have been working together with SFHA to support its members and the wider public sector.

“We are proud of the work we have done which has improved public value through better understanding and implementation of Scottish procurement regulations.”

Sally Thomas, SFHA Chief Executive, said: “By partnering with SPA, SFHA ensured that all our members throughout Scotland could gain access to the Procurement Advisory Service.

“SPA recognised the importance of procurement advice and support for the sector before the regulations came into force.”
