Orkney Islands Council published its Procurement Strategy, as required by the Procurement Reform (Scotland) Act 2014, in December 2016. In order to report compliance with its Procurement Strategy and the Act itself, the Council must publish an Annual Report.
The guidance and template issued by the Scottish Government to report on our performance from 2017 to 2018 onwards has been used for this fifth Procurement Annual Report, which is available in PDF format from the Related Downloads section of this page. The reporting period for this Annual Report is from 1 April 2021 to 31 March 2022.
In addition to the required information set out in the Act, this report includes performance against a number of strategic indicators as detailed in the Council’s Procurement Strategy Update 2021 to 2023.
In order to evidence our progress against our strategic targets and the new duties introduced by the Act, the published Annual Report details the form of measurement taken. The statistics presented in this report provide the evidence which should, over time, show how the Council is progressing against these targets and both national and local objectives.
The Forward Plan is available as part of the Annual Report in PDF format from the 'Related Downloads' section of this page.
