About the Scottish Parliament

New suppliers

Find out about supply opportunities and how we manage our contracts.


Finding supply opportunities in the Scottish public sector

Contracts over £50,000

All Scottish public sector organisations advertise procurement opportunities on Public Contracts Scotland (PCS). Any opportunities in the Scottish Parliament valued at over £50,000 will be advertised through PCS.

Register as a supplier on PCS

Contracts over the EU tender threshold are advertised on PCS and the Official Journal of the EU (OJEU).

Learn about EU tender thresholds on OJEU

Contracts under £50,000

A minimum of 3 suppliers are invited to provide a quotation for Scottish Parliament contracts valued at under £50,000.

We do not operate approved supplier lists, so registering on PCS is the best way to get involved in our procurements.

Potential future contract opportunities

All Scottish Parliament contracting opportunities will be advertised on PCS.  Potential future contract opportunities will be updated quarterly. Our requirements may change and start dates cannot be guaranteed.
