The Scottish Government wishes to place a contract with an external service provider to deliver Financial Administration and Management Of Scottish Government Heat and Energy Efficiency Grant and Loan Schemes.

View the full Contract Notice via Public Contracts Scotland (PCS).

In October 2021, the Scottish Government published the Heat in Buildings Strategy which outlines the steps we will take to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from Scotland’s homes, workplaces and community buildings and ensure that we remove poor energy efficiency as a driver of fuel poverty. It outlines our vision that by 2045 our homes and buildings are cleaner, greener and easy to heat, with our homes and buildings no longer contributing to climate change, as part of the wider just transition to net zero and tackling our climate emergency.

This strategy set targets to rapidly scale up deployment of zero emissions heating systems, so that by 2030 over 1 million homes and the equivalent of 50,000 non-domestic buildings are converted to zero emissions heat. It states that by 2030 around 50% of homes will need to convert to a zero or low emissions heating system, including the vast majority of 167,000 off-gas homes that currently use oil, LPG, and solid fuels.

Scottish Ministers have initiated a variety of loan and grant schemes aimed at promoting energy efficiency improvements, zero emissions heating, micro-renewables and energy storage across Scottish households and businesses. A Contractor is required in order to perform the day-to-day administration of the schemes, including processing applications for loans and grants, deciding whether to accept or reject applications, issuing payments and (in the case of loans) receiving repayments. Due to the nature of the core requirement (i.e., the financial management of a large volume of Scottish Government funding in the form of loans to members of the public) the Contractor will require to be registered with the Financial Conduct Authority.
