Responding to Tender Policy Requirements – Power of Procurement

Public sector procurement in Scotland is guided by several policy requirements that were put in place so that organisations, operations, and procurement exercises achieve specific, desirable outcomes. So, what does that mean for suppliers?

During this training, you will get an overview of the most common policy requirements including Sustainability, Community Benefits, Fair Work Practices, Community Wealth Building and Net Zero targets.

Join this webinar to find out how you can provide the most up-to-date policies on your bids. You will also get advice on how to record and evidence what your business is doing to meet these requirements. By successfully providing evidence on how you are implementing policy requirements, you can improve how high your bid scores go and also stand out from competitors to buyers.

During this session, you will learn: 

  • How to put the theory of the public sector's common policy requirements into practical terms.
  • What sustainability is, as well as examples of what sustainability could mean for your business.
  • What Community Benefits are, and ideas for and examples of Community Benefits you could implement into your business.
  • What Net Zero is and how you can work towards meeting your Net Zero targets.
  • What Fair Work First is, what it involves, and tools available to help you implement the five aspects of Fair Work into your business such as the Living Wage and other practical steps.
  • How to record and evidence these key common policies into your bids.
