Opportunities to do Business

Scottish Government Procurement

In line with the recommendations of the McClelland Report (2006) and the Diamond Report (2011), and Scottish Government recommended best practice, SRUC advertises contracts for the provision of goods, services and works through Public Contracts Scotland (PCS). SRUC’s use of PCS provides businesses of all sizes including micro, small and medium sized, the opportunity to compete for our business within an open, fair, sustainable and ethical environment.

In order to get up to date information on work being tendered, SRUC encourages all current and potential suppliers to register as a supplier on PCS. The following provides general procurement information to gain a better understanding of working within Scotland’s Higher Education and wider Public Sector.
