Procurement

The Scottish Courts and Tribunals Service uses the Public Contracts Scotland website. This makes it easy to find contract opportunities from across the public sector in Scotland.

Public Contracts Scotland is the national advertising website where Scottish public sector organisations:

  • post Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU) contract notices (contracts over the EU thresholds)
  • post below-threshold contract notices
  • invite suppliers to submit quotations for very low value/risk goods and services through the online 'Quick Quote' system
  • publish contract award notices
  • can reserve suitable contracts for supported businesses (businesses where 50% or more of the workforce has a disability)

All of the Scottish Courts and Tribunals Service’s published documents (including terms and conditions) can be found in this portal. 

As a requirement of the Procurement Reform (Scotland) Act 2014, our first Annual Procurement Report was signed off by the SCTS Executive Team in September 2018.
