The Scottish Procurement Alliance (SPA) is a new approach for procurement in Scotland, created for organisations that buy products and services for the construction, refurbishment and maintenance of social housing and public buildings. It is backed by LHC, one of the leading and most respected procurement companies in the UK.
The SPA results from discussions with LHC members in Scotland who saw the huge potential of having a centre of excellence for procurement – focused on construction and refurbishment – which exclusively addresses Scottish needs, standards and aspirations.
As well as providing compliance, quality and best value to members, SPA frameworks support a streamlined process from the award of a contract (call-off) to completion of a project.
All SPA frameworks have been established in strict compliance with the Scottish public sector procurement rules for use by publicly funded organisations in Scotland as detailed in the SPA buyer profile. Contract notices were issued by LHC on behalf of the Scottish Procurement Alliance.
