Public Contracts Scotland

Public Contracts Scotland provides suppliers with free easy access to all essential information on public sector business opportunities, creating a competitive market environment which will generate a better deal for the taxpayer. All public bodies are expected to use Public Contracts Scotland.

Quick Quote is an online quotation facility which allows Contracting Authorities to obtain competitive quotes
electronically for low value requirements. Details of the Quick Quote are created online through the notice
creation wizard and distributed to a select list of suppliers. There are a number of ways in which to filter and
select the suppliers that you want to invite to quote. Quick quotes are only distributed to the selected suppliers
and are not made public on the portal.

The selected suppliers can then complete the required details and submit their quotation using the secure tender
Postbox (for more information on this please see the Tender Postbox Guide)

Before using the quick quote facility users should:

1. Ensure that the procurement/mini-competition is for low value/risk goods, services or works

2. Ensure that there is no existing contract which could be accessed

3. Ensure this quotation is aligned to your local financial instructions. For further information on the use of quick quote please click here to access the SPPN: SPPN 05 2009 PCS
