Rural Procurement and Tenders
The Supplier Development Programme – SDP, this organisation helps Scottish SME’s and third sector organisations better understand public procurement opportunities and how best to position themselves to engage with public sector procurement tenders etc. They also run regular Meet the Buyer events and are a great source of expert advice.
PCS is the advertising portal that public sector organisations use to publish tender opportunities and run things like quick quotes for lower value procurements. Companies can set up their own company profiles to ensure they receive alerts of any tender opportunities. It is strongly recommended that any supplier that is looking for public sector opportunities register on this site, and it is completely free to do so.
This is a portal for companies where they can submit innovative products/services to the Scottish public sector and if deemed viable, they may get support, guidance and funding to assist them to getting it to the market.
