TPC Strategy

The TPC Procurement Strategy 2015-2020 was revised and updated in November 2016 to reflect the requirements of section 15 of the Procurement Reform (Scotland) Act 2014. The strategy sets out in broad terms the approach that the TPC takes to its procurement activity and highlights its broad aspirations and desired outcomes.


The TPC is working to promote and deliver sustainable procurement.

 - TPC Sustainability Policy

- TPC CBiPs Policy Guidance

- TPC Supporting Local Business Ten Point Plan


The TPC believe that Sustainable Procurement is Best Practice Procurement. TPC look to deliver procurement that achieves value for money on a whole life cost basis, generates benefits that impact upon our organisations, has a positive local socio-economic impact and minimises any damage we do to the environment.


As part of our commitment to Sustainable Procurement, TPC is committed to achieving the Most Economically Advantageous Terms (meat) for its member organisations.



MEAT takes into account ''Corporate Social Responsibility''  and the TPC will typically consider the following when looking at its contract requirements:

  • Sustainability
  • Health, safety and welfare
  • Environmental management
  • Equality and diversity,
  • Fair trade and ethical procurement
  • Development of local economy / engagement with the local business community


The TPC's procurement activity seeks to deliver meat from all of its collaborative procurement activity. TPC seek the meat from all TPC collaborative contracts, from clock maintenance contracts right through to contracts for grass cutting machinery equipment.


The TPC strategic approach is continually reviewed to ensure that it reflects and developments and improvements to best practice approach.
