Scotland launches e-procurement Web site:

The Scottish Executive has announced the launch of a new Web site to support its eProcurement Scotl@nd service. The service enables local government, the Scottish NHS and the Scottish central government to conduct business electronically with suppliers. It is estimated that procurement spending in the Scottish public sector reaches STG5 billion per annum. Industry benchmarks suggest that savings of between 1 percent and 5 percent can be achieved through the use of the e-procurement service. Eight public sector buying organisations already use the service, and over 300 suppliers have signed up, ranging from multinationals to SMEs. There are plans to roll out the service to other agencies in early 2004. Cap Gemini Ernst and Young was chosen to administer the service in November 2001.
