About SDP

The Supplier Development Programme (SDP) is a business support initiative using training and information to improve the competitiveness of local businesses.

SDP is a partnership of Local Authorities, Scottish Government and other public bodies working together to bring your business support in all aspects of tendering. By assisting businesses to become tender ready for public procurement, we improve all-round efficiency, sustainability and market potential.

By helping businesses become more able to tender for contracts, we improve their prospects when competing throughout Scotland where there is an annual public sector spend of £14.5billion. We deliver this support through our training and events which are all listed on our Events Calendar. If you have a small or medium sized enterprise (SME) that is based in Scotland, once your business is registered, you can access all of this support for free.

The international market place, particularly the EU, offers our businesses extensive opportunities.
