A PSA is a longer term, multi-Lotted, open framework which will be operated under the Light Touch Regime. Under Light Touch Regime regulations, only Services will be procured under this PSA.

This workshop will help you ensure you are comfortable using the Public Contracts Scotland Tender site, PCS-T, to apply for award to the PSA and then to apply for future mini-competitions issued under the PSA.

Key topics:

  • PCS-T
  • Procedures and timescales
  • What is a PSA?
  • Reasons for exclusion and ability to re-apply
  • Selection Criteria
  • Call Off Procedures
  • Contract Terms and Conditions
  • Supplier Profile and creating an ESPD profile

This event is suitable for you if:

  • You have never used the Public Contracts Scotland Tender (PCS-T) website
  • You would like to understand more about this Procured Service Agreement
  • You have used PCS-T and want to make sure you are making the most of the site
