The City Deal is anticipated to generate 15,000 construction jobs during the construction period and 29,000 permanent additional jobs once construction is complete; give the City Region a permanent uplift in its Gross Value Added (GVA) of £2.2billion per annum and unlock £3.3billion of private sector investment.
Local businesses should make the most of the City Deal by:
- Registering on Public Contracts Scotland to access up to £1 billion of City Deal contracts.
- Attending local business engagement events.
- Visiting our Procurement area to find out more about City Deal contracts / timescales as well as work underway to streamline bid tender process and documentation across the eight member authorities.
- Supporting Community Benefits requirements in City Deal contracts which help suppliers give something back to the local area.
Play your part in supporting the City Deal and help our region to grow and prosper.
