FOI Request Social Enterprises
I would like to request the following information from your local authority:
a) The total number of local government contracts for goods and services that have been tendered in the local authority's procurement process in each of the last five years;
b) The total value to the nearest £100 of the local authority's procurement process in each of the last five years;
c) The number of social enterprises that have been successful in local government tendering process in each of the last five years; (Please list social enterprises by name along with the value of their award if it is possible to do so within the reasonable cost limit)
d) The total amount of money that has been awarded to social enterprises in your local authority for public procurement contracts in each of the last five years.
I am essentially trying to establish whether there has been an increase in the use of social enterprises throughout Scotland's local government procurement process in recent years.
