'A consortium led by Ready for Business LLP has won a £1.5 million contract to raise awareness of the Third Sector in Scotland's procurement community.

- strengthen understanding and application of Community Benefits in Procurement
- encourage routine use of co-production in the design of public services and development of Public-Social Partnerships'
