The Council’s updated 'Procurement Strategy for 2019 to 2021' is available from the 'Related Downloads' section of this page.
Orkney Islands Council published its updated Procurement Strategy, as required by the Procurement Reform (Scotland) Act 2014, in January 2019. In order to report compliance with its Procurement Strategy and the Act itself, the Council must publish an Annual report.
The reporting period for this second annual report is from 1 April 2018 to 31 March 2019.
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.
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 both the national and local objectives. The Forward Plan is available as part of the Annual Report.
Targets were set in the Council’s Procurement Strategy and progress towards these has been noted in this second Procurement Annual Report available in PDF format from the 'Related Links' section of this page.
