The Sustainable Procurement Tools platform, developed by software consultancy Horisk Leslie Development, brings together three tools designed to help Scotland’s public sector organisations identify and address how they can optimise the economic, social and environmental outcomes of their procurement.
It makes them easier to access, reference and use. It also enables better sharing of knowledge and experience within and beyond the organisations and makes them more likely to be used and deliver their benefits to the organisations, businesses and the public. The bespoke platform replaces several offline tools and is already being used by just under 100 procurement officials.
Horisk, which specialises in bespoke software systems, won the £61,000 contract through a competitive tender in one of the Scottish government’s national frameworks designed to ensure best value and quality in privately-sourced services and products.
Director Brian Horisk said: “We’re delighted to have had another large public sector client select us to develop a key tool which will be used by many organisations throughout Scotland.”
