Joining the PSMA
Almost every public sector organisation in England and Wales, including all local authorities, central government departments and many health organisations can join the PSMA. Eligible health organisations are "those bodies that fall within the definition of 'contracting authority' in Regulation 3 of the Public Contracts Regulations 2006 for England and Wales."
The following are unable to join the PSMA:
- GPs and GP practices
- organisations whose remit is mainly in Scotland (and are therefore covered by other arrangements)
- infrastructure bodies
- housing associations
- social enterprises
- community interest companies
- charities and charitable trusts
