Download Adobe Acrobat file The ESPD (Scotland) should be used for all regulated procurement selection stage questions. The Council can issue selection stage questions either in advance of an ITT, as part of a two stage process, or within an ITT document, a one stage process. This is to allow the Council to identify suitably qualified and experienced bidders, and to ensure consistency in their approach to selection. The Selection Stage should allow you to identify suitably qualified and experienced bidders. Selection criteria should be proportionate to the value of the purchase, its sensitivity, estimated risks, and the complexity of the requirement. From 9 April 2018, an electronic version of the ESPD (Scotland) will be incorporated into Public Contracts Scotland (PCS) and will be available for you to use. This electronic version of the ESPD (Scotland) is known as the “online ESPD (Scotland) module on PCS”. The online ESPD (Scotland) module on PCS will allow you to select all of the exclusion and selection criteria required for your procurement exercise from pre-populated lists and include additional information where required e.g. for insurance levels you can enter the value of insurance levels needed for your procurement process. This change means that all ESPD information will be held in this self-contained on-line ESPD (Scotland) module, and therefore minimum requirements, exclusion and selection criteria information do not need to be added to the Contract Notice and cross referenced to an ESPD (Scotland) question. - Download 5794.pdf (1.71 Mb)
