Delegated Purchasing Authority
The Supplier Journey provides guidance on how to bid for public sector contracts in Scotland. It defines a Delegated Purchasing Authority (DPA) as: ‘…the authority given to an individual to sign-off contracts. It is not to be confused with Delegated Finance Authority as it is important that there is adequate separation of duties between the individual who has finance authority i.e. the budget holder and the individual with purchasing authority i.e. who places the contract.’
