NHS Education for Scotland (NES) will normally advertise tender opportunities on the Public Contracts Scotland (PCS) and or the Public Contracts Scotland - Tenders, the Scottish Government sponsored websites for Scottish public sector tender opportunities. Where appropriate, we will advertise on the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU).
We therefore recommend that suppliers register themselves on the PCS websites (membership is free of charge). It is also recommended that you complete your Supplier Profile including the 6 key fields and attribute one or more Categories to your account. Guidance is available on the PCS website.
Guidance on NES procurement procedures can be found on the Suppliers Guide [PDF] page along with some Frequently Asked Questions.
NES would recommend that you visit our Equality and Diversity pages and read this policy document which may be referred to in our tenders: NES Inclusive Education and Learning Policy [PDF]
We would welcome any feedback on our tendering processes from suppliers and potential suppliers. To do so please visit: Engaging with our stakeholders, Procurement & Tendering Equality Impact Assessment Consultation.
In line with the Procurement Reform (Scotland) Act 2014 NES maintains a contracts register on the Public Contracts Scotland website. To register, select contracts register Tab.
