The transition period following the UK’s exit from the EU is coming to an end. This will result in some minor changes from 11 pm on 31 December 2020.  These changes are outlined below:

Finding Scottish Public Contracts Opportunities after 11pm on 31 December 2020

Contract opportunities from Scottish public bodies will continue to appear on Public Contracts Scotland (PCS).

In addition, ‘above threshold’ notices will also appear on a new UK e-notification service called Find a Tender Service. Notices published by public bodies in the rest of the UK may also be found here.

Public sector contract opportunities in the EU can continue to be accessed via OJEU/TED.

 

European Single Procurement Document (ESPD) 

The ESPD will be renamed  the Single Procurement Document (SPD). There will be some minor changes made to the document, reflecting amendments to procurement rules following the end of the EU exit transition period.  Buyers will still be responsible for determining which SPD questions suppliers need to answer. 

Further communications will be issued over the coming weeks.   

If you have any queries about the change from the ESPD to the SPD please contact: Procurement_Development@gov.scot 

 

Standard Documentation and Guidance 

Guidance contained within the Supplier Journey will be updated to reflect any changes as a result of the EU transition period ending. 

Further communications will be issued over the coming weeks.
