Information for suppliers

To ensure fairness, best practice and value for money in our procurement processes, we follow the Scottish Government's Suppliers Charter code of conduct.

Tendering procedures depend on the value and the nature of what's being purchased. Public sector contracts of more than £50,000 are advertised on the Public Contracts Scotland website.
