Procurement of care and support services: best practice guidance

This Best-practice guidance updates and replaces the 2010 'Procurement of Care and Support Services' guidance to reflect the changes to the national procurement rules as a result of 2014 European Procurement Directives, the Procurement Reform (Scotland) Act 2014 and implementing regulations.

It complements the statutory guidance published under the Procurement Reform (Scotland) Act 2014 which principally covers the main legal rules applying to the procurement of health or social services, including care and support services.
