Scot­land’s cent re of pro­cure­ment ex­per­tise for lo­cal gov­ern­ment has reached the fi­nal of a na­tional award scheme.

Scot­land Ex­cel, based in Cot­ton Street, Pais­ley, has wel­comed news that it has four en­tries short­listed in the pres­ti­gious Scot­tish GO Awards.

The orga n i s at i o n ’ s do­mes­tic fur­ni­ture and fur­nish­ings (DFF) frame­work has been short­listed for the award’s ‘ Sus­tain­abil­ity’ cat­e­gory and its con­struc­tion team is a fi­nal­ist in ‘Team of the Year’.

The or­gan­i­sa­tion’s work on in­dex­a­tion and its port­fo­lio of food con­tracts have both been short­listed in the ‘In­no­va­tion’ cat­e­gory.

Coun­cil­lor John Shaw, con­vener of Scot­land Ex­cel, said: “Be­ing short­listed for the Scot­tish GO awards speak vol­umes for the col­lab­o­ra­tive work we do to de­liver ef­fi­cient and in­no­va­tive frame­works for Scot­land’s coun­cils and also for the value we bring to the public pro­cure­ment land­scape.

“We lead the way in many ar­eas of public pro­cure­ment, with in­no­va­tion and sus­tain­abil­ity rooted in ev­ery­thing we do.

“So we are ab­so­lutely de­lighted to have four en­tries short­listed and we wish all other fi­nal­ists the very best of luck.”
