How to do business with the Council

Registering as a Supplier

We welcome enquiries from existing and new suppliers who are interested in tendering for business.

We do not maintain an Approved List of Suppliers;  we currently refer to a database of suppliers for low value quotations in line with Standing Orders (process currently under review) as well as using the Supplier search facility on the Public Contracts Scotland portal, any company wishing to receive business from the Council should therefore register with Public Contracts Scotland, on their registration page

Receiving Alerts

Once you are registered on this site you can also receive automated alerts regarding the higher value opportunities that are applicable to your organisation. European adverts are also published on Public Contracts Scotland and the Official Journal of the European Union.
