When new products or services are identified, or when an existing contract is to be re-competed our tenders will always be advertised via the Public Contract Scotland website.
This website is used by all public bodies in Scotland to advertise tender opportunities. Suppliers can register on this website and can select commodity categories in which they have an interest. When a new notice is placed by a public body, an email will be sent to the supplier with a registered interest in that commodity. Any organisation that meets the criteria stated, can register their interest.
If the overall contract value exceeds the EU Regulations thresholds, the requirement will also be advertised in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU) and selection of suppliers invited to tender depends on the procedure chosen (open, restricted, negotiated, etc).
Notices of contract award will also, depending on overall value of the contract, be advertised either on Public Contract Scotland website and/or OJEU, as well as our website.
