3-Part Video Series Introduction to eProcurement Scotl@nd: The World’s Most Successful Public Sector Program

Posted on February 10, 2010


Given the recent developments in the world of public sector procurement surrounding the Buy American program and the seven part series on winning government contracts with Washington-based expert author Judy Bradt, I though that it would be a good idea to share with you the first in a 3-Part Video Series on the very successful eProcurement Scotl@nd program.

Thanks of course go to the exciting new Blog “Essential Connections” who were kind enough to make this available to Procurement Insights.

eProcurement Scotl@nd

eProcurement Scotl@nd is the world’s most successful public-sector eProcurement Programme, supporting spend of over £3Bn per annum. This first in a 3-Part video series demonstrates how both buyers and suppliers have realised benefits.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

eProcurement Scotl@nd (ePS) is one of the most comprehensive and successful Public Sector eGovernment initiatives in the world. It is a fully hosted and managed 24 x 7 eProcurement service, accessed via web browsers managed by the Scottish Government.

The service allows for the digitisation of routine purchasing activities from requisition to payment with interaction to legacy finance systems. It also supports electronic sourcing activities that are undertaken by public sector procurement professionals. The Scottish Government support a centrally co-ordinated eProcurement service to help meet eGovernment targets and embrace and exploit the opportunities provided.

The wider suite of eTools are collectively referred to as ‘Technology for Reform’ and they are the services of choice for public sector procurement in Scotland. They are implemented in Central Government, Universities & Colleges, Health Boards and Local Authorities. For more information, please see the Purchasers & Suppliers Guides to Technology for Reform.
