Update of POSMS SMPs

All SMPs have now been updated to version 4.0. These updates include re-formatting of the structure to a more consistent layout and removal of duplicated text. The POSMS summary has also been updated. These changes do not impact the content of POSMS, only the presentational structure - further information can be found in the updates section of each SMP. A SEB will be issued to formally announce the changes in due course.


The Introduction of the Sustainable Procurement Tool

As part of the recent development of ASEMS, QSEP has been investigating embedding Sustainable Procurement (SP) principles more effectively within DE&S procurement activities. This has resulted in the introduction of a new SP Toolkit for Delivery Teams together with supporting guidance. The tool kit is intended to provide a proportionate and relevant approach for Delivery Teams to manage SP during the acquisition lifecycle.
