Registration for the 'Heat in Building Scotland - New National Scheme' Supplier Event

Scottish Government logo

The Scottish Government intends to run a procurement exercise to appoint a Managing Agent for the delivery of the ‘Heat in Buildings Scotland - New National Scheme’ (“the Scheme”). This is the successor to the Scottish Government's current Warmer Homes Scotland programme. Due to go live in 2023, the core of the new Scheme will target households which are in fuel poverty or at risk of being in fuel poverty.

The Managing Agent will be responsible for managing the customer journey as the retrofit coordinator – this will entail identifying the measures which are suitable for the dwelling, carrying out a technical survey, installing the measures, arranging a post-installation inspection and putting in place a service warranty. The measures installed will be mainly insulation, heating and micro generation measures, with a focus on zero emissions heating systems where this is not detrimental to Scottish Government fuel poverty objectives.

Whilst the intention is to appoint a single Managing Agent to deliver the Scheme, there is likely to be scope for sub-contractor opportunities in relation to physical installation of measures across Scotland.

In advance of the procurement exercise, the Scottish Government is holding a Digital Supplier Engagement Event:

  • Event Date: Thursday, 10 February 2022
  • Event Time: 9:00 - 13.30 GMT
  • Event Purpose: The event will provide an opportunity for interested parties to learn more about the 'Heat in Buildings Scotland - New National Scheme’ and the forthcoming procurement exercise, and will also include Question & Answer and Networking sessions.

To register to attend the event, individuals must complete and submit the registration form on an external website.

In the week preceding the event, you will then be issued with a link which will allow you to digitally access the Supplier Event via a dedicated online platform.
