Tender Process

We advertise all of our tendering opportunities on the Public Contracts Scotland website.

We conduct our formal tenders electronically using the Public Contracts Scotland – Tenders system. This is an online system that has been introduced to help Scottish public sector organisations adopt standard processes for goods, services and works for a wide variety of contracts. A link to this system is always included in the advertised tender opportunity on the Public Contracts Scotland website.

When we need to request a quotation for goods or services (under £50,000 in value) we use the Quick Quote facility on the Public Contracts Scotland website.

We have an obligation to offer the best quality and best value services to the public community and requires an exceptional standard of performance from its contractors and suppliers.

All tenders and quotations are evaluated to achieve this obligation and details of the specific evaluation criteria and the relative weighting of the criteria are included in the tender documents that suppliers access.

If you see an advertised tender opportunity that you are interested in tendering for, you should click the link to the Public Contracts Scotland – Tender portal to register your interest, you will then be able to access more detail on our tender requirements.
