Welcome to SDP Historic Environment Scotland

Our procurement strategy varies according to the nature, cost and complexity of the products or services being purchased.

Contracts valued above £50,000 are generally advertised on the Public Contracts Scotland website, except where there’s a justifiable need to pursue a different procedure. Our procedures are in line with Scottish Procurement’s guidance and based on its Procurement Journey routes.

For all purchases between £5,000 and £50,000, written invitations to quote should be issued to at least three suppliers. For purchases above £20,000, use of the Quick Quote facility on the Public Contracts Scotland portal is being rolled out within Historic Environment Scotland.

Suppliers and contractors can access details of all Scottish public sector contracts for free through the Public Contracts Scotland portal. You can also register for free email alerts about new tender opportunities.

Our gift shops are well known among our visitors for the wide range of quality goods they sell. Suppliers are welcome to approach us with details of appropriate products that we might consider for resale in our retail outlets.

Products must be:

  • commercial
  • relevant to the monument and to Scotland and its history
  • high quality
  • competitively priced
  • able to complement other products within our range.
