The purpose of this annual report is to aid visibility of NHS National Services Scotland’s (“the Authority”) purchasing activities and to allow us to record and publicise our performance and achievements in delivering our procurement strategy. This report allows us to demonstrate to our stakeholders that our procurement spend is being used to best effect to achieve:
- Security of Supply
- Better public services;
- Social, economic and environmental outcomes in our area; and,
- A range of local and national policies e.g. those relating to tackling inequality and meeting climate change obligations.
