Barkers, The Big Partnership and Consolidated PR have all been retained for a further four years. Golley Slater, Stripe Communications and Weber Shandwick have both won new places on the roster.

The Government announced it was enlarging the number of organisations which could use the roster when it put out the pitch in February (PRWeek, 21 February 2008).

The previous list was used by a range of companies including The Scottish Government and Parliament, VisitScotland and Health Scotland.

Scottish Government deputy director of marketing and new media Roger Williams said another 24 organisations were to join the list in September. The new additions include Scottish National Heritage, the Crofters Commission and Registers of Scotland.

The PR roster was overhauled as part of a statutory review of the Scottish Government's creative agencies.
