New Contract Advertising Portal - Public Contracts Scotland
13th October 2008
The Scottish Government launched a new on-line contract advertising portal, Public Contracts Scotland www.publiccontractsscotland.co.uk on 1st October 2008.
This free service will be available to all Scottish public sector organisations and will be used as a one-stop-shop to publish contract opportunities.
The Highland Council is fully committed to the use of this website to publish contract notices. As from 1st October the Highland Council is using this website to publish future contract opportunities that require advertisement.
The previous website (www.publictender.co.uk) will no longer be used after 1st October. Publictender has notified all suppliers that were registered on that site and a notice has been posted on their website. The Scottish Government will be leading an advertisement campaign with regards to this free service.
Suppliers can register with Public Contracts Scotland and be set up to receive automatic email notification of relevant contract opportunities, all free of charge. The Highland Council will itself be publishing a series of notices in some of the local press and a notice has been published on the Highland Council website www.highland.gov.uk.
We wish to ensure that as many suppliers as possible are made aware of this service and so it seems appropriate to use our links with the Chamber of Commerce to assist. It would be greatly appreciated if you could communicate the above notice to your members.
