Positive Procurement Programme (PPP)
The Positive Procurement Programme (PPP) is a joint initiative between Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire Councils. Its purpose is to support local businesses to develop their capacity to bid successfully for public procurement contracts. The PPP offers training and networking opportunities. The training will cover introductory and intermediate levels, which will be of interest to businesses new to public procurement and to those who wish to develop their current practice.
The Commercial & Procurement Services for both Aberdeen City Council and Aberdeenshire Council advertise their tenders on the National Public Contracts Scotland Portal. You are encouraged to register as a supplier and download tender documents from that website.
More and more Council business is being conducted electronically. If you cannot currently do business this way you should give it some serious consideration. When documents are available on the above websites, you can download them and either print them off or save them to your own computer.
Although the tender documents are quite detailed, they are intended to encourage you to tender for our business. If you have any queries regarding the documents do not be afraid to get in touch with the named contact for assistance.
