SQA Procurement

Procurement covers the process of acquisition of goods, works and services from third parties by contracting authorities. It ranges from initial concept and definition of business need through to the end of the useful life of a procured asset or service contract.

As a Non-Departmental Public Body, SQA is accountable to the Scottish Government. Details of this relationship and associated responsibilities are set out in the Management Statement and Financial Memorandum. This requires SQA to comply with law and Government regulation as set out in a number of documents (including the Scottish Public Finance Manual, HM Treasury guidance, and European Union procurement directives) which ensures that openness and value for money are achieved in all transactions.
