Procurement guidance launched to tackle Scottish waste crime

Procurement guidance has been launched to help Scotland’s public bodies, and other businesses, prevent criminals gaining waste contracts.

The Scottish Environment Protection Agency (Sepa) and Zero Waste Scotland launched ‘Guidance on procuring waste services for public bodies and their contractors: Good practice guidance to prevent crime’ at the RWM event.

It highlights ‘red flags’ that may indicate a risk of crime, as well as suggesting phrasing for procurement documents, best practice checklists and advising on what to do if they think something is wrong.

Sepa executive director, Calum MacDonald (pictured) said: “We aim to provide public bodies with the tools they need to design effective procurement processes that deliver the waste services they require while protecting as far as possible from the risk of awarding contracts to those engaged in crime.”
