Public Contracts Scotland
Connecting public and private sector business, Public Contracts Scotland (PCS) is used by all public sector organisations in Scotland, to advertise high value contracts and invite suppliers to provide a ‘Quick Quote’ for lower value contacts.
The Scottish Government has implemented PCS along with various partners to help Scottish public sector organisations adopt standard processes for goods, services and works for a wide variety of contracts.
PCS provides a more consistent tendering experience for suppliers, enabling them to store answers to standard questions. The service also allows public sector buyers to adhere to legislation, policy and procedures and through a standard approach to public sector procurement, it aims to generate savings for the public purse, while meeting the needs of goods, services and works required.

These give you, as a supplier, advance notice of collaborative opportunities that may be offered by the public sector in the future - so that you can plan accordingly.
