Public Contracts Scotland (PCS) is Scottish Government’s official national portal for public sector contracts, providing free access to contract opportunities in Scotland. The portal and the contracts within are open to all sectors to bid on (unless stated otherwise), including third sector.
PCS also provides a free email alert service for upcoming contracts.
This service is currently being updated; currently, the service uses the procurement classification system ProClass, but will be switching to the new tagging system, known as Common Procurement Vocabulary (CPV) in on Thursday 31st October.
New supplier profiles will be created through this new tagging system.
In preparation for the update, if your organisation or group is signed up for the service as a supplier, you may wish to review the list of CPV codes and identify those relevant to you.
Supplier with existing profiles are urged to check your new profile as soon as possible after this update and amend the CPV codes as necessary, to ensure it remains relevant to your organisation or group’s business interest.
The update will go live at 5:30pm on Thursday 31st October.
For further information, including any issues experienced with the CPV codes list, or with updating your profile’s CPV codes after the update, please contact Public Contracts Scotland by phone: 0800 222 9003.
