Information requested

A breakdown of the £51,143.50 spent on 'Scottish Government Procurement' regarding Baby Box spend in financial year 2017/18.

Response

To clarify, the figure for "Scottish Government Procurement" is not an item of Scottish Government expenditure. This refers to a funds transfer between Scottish Government cost centres and is an internal "re-charge" to cover work undertaken by Scottish Government staff in the procurement team. Re-charge policy for procurement is corporate, ie normal practice that applies across the whole of government. The figure represents 147.5 man-days at various charge rates.
