I Am Registered with PCS but I Haven’t Received Any Alerts

There may be several reasons for this, such as:

  • there have been no opportunities advertised that match your business profile as there are existing contracts in place; 
  • the categories you have selected may need to be amended;
  • there is no need for what you offer within the public sector?

You can:

  • See what contracts organisations have in place by checking their Contract Registers (some organisations publish these on PCS, others on their own websites);
  • Update/change the categories you have selected (please find more information below in the next question and response);
  • Speak to public sector procurement officers and ask what their requirements are;
  • Check your details are up-to-date;
  • You should consider making your PCS contact e-mail address a general contract address that several people in your organisation can access, so that an opportunity is not missed if an individual is absent, or if they leave your organisation, etc.;
  • Make sure PCS emails from support@publiccontractsscotland.gov.uk are getting to your inbox and are not being quarantined by your organisation’s firewall or spam filter.
