The e-Procurement system is the primary system for all quotation and tendering exercises.The e-Procurement system is a fully electronic process from supplier registration through to Contractor Performance Management. All communication will be done through the system and therefore, to be involved in any Procurement exercises, it is advised to register using the link in the box on the right hand side.
How to register for the e-Procurement System
The e-Procurement system is not a preferred supplier list and registering your details does not guarantee that your company will be included in future procurement exercises. However, it does ensure you will be notified of any requirements that may be of interest to you.
The registration process only takes a few minutes to complete. For guidance on the registration process, please download the e-Procurement guidance documentation. Registration page and guidance documentation can be acccessed via the links in the box on the right hand side.
PLEASE NOTE: As of Monday 30 April 2012, the look of the e-Procurement Supplier Portal will be changing. Whilst the processes for registering, downloading tender documentation and viewing / sending correspondence will essentially stay the same - the site will appear different visually and the changes made are designed to make the portal more accessible. Updated guidance is available for suppliers in the box to the right of this screen. Any queries or need for assistance should be directed to Procurement Services on 0131 348 6620 or email@example.com.
After registration you will be notified by email if a procurement exercise which falls under your Business Category has commenced. Your Business Category will be chosen by you at the registration process. Further guidance on this process can be found in the guidance for suppliers in the box on the right hand side.
It is your responsibility to maintain your details and update them within the e-Procurement system should they change. You will be prompted annually to ensure the details we have at that time are correct.
As part of the Scottish Parliamentary Corporate Body's (SPCB) responsibility under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002, the SPCB may be required to disclose any information provided by you, with the exception of personal data which will not be released to anyone who makes a request under the Act.
Other database opportunities
The SPCB also uses the Public Contracts Scotland Portal for its advertising requirements. This Portal is used widely throughout the Scottish public sector for advertising contract requirements and it is therefore recommended that you register your details on this Portal as well as the above e-Procurement system. Contract advertisements exceeding the EU threshold can also be found in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU). These can be viewed via the Tenders Electronic Daily website.
