Scottish Government: Survey of Suppliers 2020

This survey is being used to gather views from those selling to the Scottish public sector to offer a supplier perspective on a range of strategic topics. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • organisations’ experiences of bidding for and/or delivering Scottish public sector contracts
  • the provision of training, support and advice on tendering for contracts
  • barriers to bidding for and/or delivering contracts
  • and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on suppliers.

Please note that by ‘Scottish public sector’, we mean public sector bodies which are based in Scotland and which relate only to Scotland. This includes (but is not limited to) the Scottish Government and the 32 Scottish local authorities, as well as Scotland’s NHS, universities and colleges, and registered social landlords. 

For the purposes of this survey, we are not including procurement activities related to UK public sector organisations which are located in Scotland, such as the Department for International Development or HM Revenue and Customs.

Participation in this survey is voluntary. We would encourage all suppliers to complete this survey as the feedback received will help inform future thinking on the policy and delivery of Scottish public procurement.

The survey should take around 20-30 minutes to complete. The closing date for the survey is Friday 11 December 2020 at 5pm.

If you have any questions about this survey, please contact Susan Gardiner at
