The CICV Forum was set up in March 2020 as a direct result of COVID-19 in an effort to work collaboratively to help tackle some of the issues we knew our industry would face. The Forum comprises 25 trade and professional bodies and is supported by various other bodies and individuals, providing vital advice and information to our members and to Scottish Government.

The objective of this survey is to gather information on how Policy Notices issued by the Scottish Government in respect of procurement (SPPNs and CPPNs) are being used by Local Authorities and other public bodies to help those working in our industry and to identify good and bad practise.

The survey comprises 10 questions and should only take 5 minutes to complete. The survey is completely confidential and anonymous, but should you wish to be contacted about your experiences, good or bad, then please leave your name at the end of the survey.
