Our regulated procurements are advertised via Public Contracts Scotland (PCS). PCS is used by public bodies in Scotland to advertise tender opportunities. Suppliers can register on PCS and select commodity categories in which they have an interest. Email alerts will be issued by PCS to those suppliers that have registered an interest in a particular commodity category when a new advert is placed by a public body. Any organisation that meets the criteria stated in an advert can register their interest.
If the value of a procurement requirement is less than £50,000, we use the Quick Quote module in PCS.
If the estimated tender value exceeds (or is likely to exceed) the threshold values that apply to public procurement exercises subject to the Public Contract (Scotland) Regulations 2015, the procurement will also be advertised in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU).
Notices of contract awards made by us with a value greater than £50,000 are published on PCS.
