Council Tenders

The Review of Public Procurement in Scotland recommended that an open market environment supported by a single public sector electronic portal should be established. Suppliers must be able to access all essential information on opportunities to offer services and bid for contracts for the supply of commodities and services to the whole public sector in Scotland.

The national advertising portal - Public Contracts Scotland- has been established in response to the recommendation. This portal enables the Council to advertise all contracting opportunities, irrespective of value.

Adverts which must be published on the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU) website will also be submitted through the portal to the Publications Office of the European Commission.

The portal allows documents to be attached to the notice for example Pre-Qualification Questionnaires, Invitation To Tender documentation etc.

Suppliers can view the contract notices and in addition if registered, can receive free e-alerts notifying them of contract opportunities relevant to their business.

All contract opportunities valued at over 10,000 are required to be advertised through Public Contracts Scotland as detailed in the Procurement Journey.

Contract opportunities below 10,000 in value should be considered for advertising where this will support the Council's policy objectives and the exercise can demonstrate best value as detailed in the Procurement Journey

Please note the portal is not an e-tendering system.
