Scottish government website to help SMEs bid for contracts

The Scottish government has launched a website to make it easier for Scottish companies — particularly small businesses — to bid for infrastructure work in the public sector.

Scottish cabinet secretary for infrastructure and capital investment Alex Neil this week announced the launch of the Supplier Journey website, which will guide businesses through the process of applying for contracts.

“It’s really important that suppliers have a voice in public procurement, and we have worked with Scottish businesses to design the Supplier Journey,” said Neil. “This brings together and simplifies a lot of often complicated guidance, making it easier to understand. It will be particularly useful for small businesses.

“Small and medium enterprises (SME) make up 74% of all firms winning contracts advertised on Public Contracts Scotland. Today’s development will make it easier still for SMEs to bid for work.”
