The purpose of the framework is to provide access to a wide range of expert support and resources to help the IS and councils progress work where they need extra capacity on a flexible basis.

The procurement may be open to Local Authorities across Scotland but we are currently looking into this.

We are looking for a diverse range of individuals / organisations with the relevant skills, knowledge and expertise from across Scotland. If you are interested in taking part, come along to one of our free information / networking sessions.

The key purpose of both events is to publicise this opportunity, to help attract the best Associates and to inform potential Associates about our key priorities including the types of projects and initiatives we are involved in and the programmes we support. It will also provide potential Associates with the chance to gain insight into the types of skills, knowledge and experience we are looking for.

Both events are designed to attract those who are considering responding to the ITT. However, it is important to note that specific information concerning the ITT will not be discussed at the events.

Please note that there is a limited number of places at each event therefore registration is necessary on the following links:
