The procurement of goods and services valued over £50,000 or works valued over £850,000 are formally tendered via the Public Contracts Scotland website:
You can register for free on the website and you'll receive notifications when we add new adverts. We also use the site to request quotes for low value and low risk procurement exercises which is particularly suitable for small, local companies.
Procurement rules and standards
Council procurement is delivered in line with some clear rules and standards to ensure we achieve best value, meet legal and social obligations, and are fair and accountable in dealings with contractors and suppliers.
