Procurement officer

The Supplier Journey provides guidance on how to bid for public sector contracts in Scotland. It defines a procurement officer as: ‘Normally the name given to the role/person who is a buyer in a public sector organisation. They are an individual who spends the majority of their time working in a role that adds value to the quality, cost and effectiveness of the procurement or acquisition of goods and services.’

It suggests a public sector buyer is: 'A procurement officer who procures on behalf of an organisation which is subject to public procurement laws. This may be a government, council, university, college, the NHS or registered social landlords.'
