Supplier? Receive alerts of new opportunities on ‘Public Contracts Scotland’

April 4, 2022 by No Comments | Category PCS, Public Contracts Scotland, Scottish Procurement

Did you know you can receive email alerts when buyers add notices to the Public Contracts Scotland (PCS) portal? You can get notification of these opportunities by email by registering for and updating your alert profile.

What is an Alert Profile?

An Alert Profile is a free feature on PCS you can use to help you find relevant opportunities being advertised by Public Sector buyers.

How does it work?

When setting up your Alert Profile you will select categories, key words and Common Procurement Vocabulary (CPV) codes relating to the areas under which you are interested in bidding for contacts.

Once you set up your Alert Profile you will receive emails letting you know about opportunities that buyers have added to PCS when they have used the categories, key words or CPV codes that match yours.

Setting up and updating your Alert Profile

View the step-by-step video below on how to set up your alert profile.
