FOI Request - Procurement Value
Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 I seek information about your contracts with SMEs.
I would be grateful if you could please tell me the total value of Moray Council's procurement using a formal tendering process over the past five years, and the total value of procurement from SMEs using a formal tendering process over this period.
Reviewing the information held on our contract register we would advise that:
Contracts with contract award dates between 1/4/11 and today, have an estimated contract value of £276,738,109.
It is difficult to determine how much of this is awarded to SME's as many of our contracts are frameworks with multiple suppliers and our register holds all the potential suppliers for each contract. The estimated value of contracts where there is an SME listed on the register is £201,331,222.
The register does not record subsequent direct awards or call off orders and therefore I cannot determine the actual SME value. This is therefore exempt under Section 17 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002, information not held.
