Council Contract Opportunities
Where The Moray Council has a requirement to purchase goods and services externally, opportunities (over £50,000 in value), will be advertised via the Public Contracts Scotland (PCS) website www.publiccontractsscotland.gov.uk.
Public Contracts Scotland also has a functionality called Supplier Finder which is an optional service for suppliers allowing them to advertise their company on the PCS website.
The Moray Council uses this tool to source suppliers for low value/low risk quotations and we would therefore encourage all suppliers to complete the supplier finder profile for their business. Read the Guidance on Supplier finder.
We would therefore request that suppliers do not contact the Council directly to promote their business.
