Procurement Annual Reports

Front cover of the Procurement Annual Report 2022-23

Scotland’s historic environment is part and parcel of our daily lives: it is our castles, standing stones and landscapes; our factories, mills, and shipyards; our homes, our streets, and our stories. It is a catalyst for economic growth, driving tourism, regeneration and sustainable development and fuelling improvements.

HES is a Non-Departmental Public Body (NDPB) with charitable status (registered charity number SC202659) and is a public sector contracting authority, subject to the Procurement Reform (Scotland) Act 2014, and as such is required to produce an annual report on our regulated procurement activities and achievements in delivering our previously published Procurement Strategy. This Annual Report also includes the procurement activities of Historic Environment Scotland Enterprises Limited (HESe), the Trading Arm and wholly owned subsidiary of HES.
