Sport SEN – Partnerships and Procurement

Opening Scotland Excel Frameworks to Third Sector and the Benefits for Sport and Community Facilities.

On Thursday 25 June we hosted a virtual SEN meeting with Neil Young from P4P and Iain Murray from Scotland Excel discussing partnerships, procurement and the current offer of free access to various Scotland Excel frameworks.

It was an informative session and highlighted the potential cost and time saving benefits which can come from collective purchasing and joining with other organisations to procure goods and/or services.  Something which might be useful for organisations to explore in the future, especially in relation to safety, hygiene and practical measures which will be essential in order to ensure compliance with Scottish Government guidance around re-opening.
