June 18, 2018 by 2 Comments | Category contracts, Procurement news, Supplier Journey, suppliers

In response to the feedback received from the supplier guidance survey carried out last year by the Scottish Government a new Supplier Journey website has now been launched.

The website is free to use and contains information for suppliers on how to bid for public sector goods, services and health and social care contracts. It includes:

  • information on where to find contract opportunities;
  • Frequently Asked Questions;
  • information on procurement procedures;
  • a glossary of procurement terms;
  • where to find help and support.


  • The supplier journey will be updated with changes to legislation, policy and best practice to make sure that the guidance and advice is current.
  • You can receive automatic emails, confirming updates made to the site, by providing your details via the “Notify Me of Changes” link.
  • You can provide comments via the “Contact” link.

    Does this new facility advise which contracts are closed?
    I have been on wrong end of tenders where the procurement are going through the motions and have already decided who is getting the contract. A waste of time even tendering although when I question whether the purchaser is getting value for money I am advised this is the way we do things and it is legal.

    • Eddie Chapman says:

      The Supplier Journey is provided to offer support and guidance to individuals and organisations who are interested in bidding for goods and services contracts in the Scottish public sector. For details relating to specific contracts please contact the individual authority responsible for the particular procurement process.
