We are delighted to announce that we have retained our CIPS Corporate Certification following rigorous assessment.  

We were judged against five key performance criteria: leadership and organisation, strategy, people, processes and systems, and performance measurement and management.

In response to the news, Hugh Carr, Head of Strategic Procurement, said: “Retaining our CIPS accreditation is an immense source of pride for Scotland Excel.

“This achievement confirms that our people and our policies are successfully working together to realise the potential of public procurement to deliver social, economic and environmental benefits.

"As the Procurement Centre of Expertise for local government, we are continually striving to improve so that we can support positive change across our sector."

In 2010 Scotland Excel was the first Scottish public sector organisation to achieve this certification.
