Background to the PSIF and PSIF Organisations

PSIF was launched in September 2006, with six organisations identified to take part in Phase One of the roll-out: City of Edinburgh Council; Stirling Council and Clackmannanshire Council (based on certain shared services); Lothian and Borders Fire and Rescue; Strathclyde Fire and Rescue; Scottish University for Industry (Learndirect Scotland).


PSIF has developed significantly over the years as it has been updated to remain relevant for the public sector in Scotland. As well as the standard PSIF statement set, there is now numerous other PSIF statement sets for areas such as Community Planning and Health and Social Care.


The table below shows the organisations and partnerships using or used the PSIF since 2015.
