There will be some upcoming changes to the Procurement Journey as a result of the recent UK Trade Agreements with Australia and New Zealand.
These changes will update guidance on the following areas:
- using PINs (Prior Information Notice) as a call for competition
- estimating the prices of contracts and
- terminating contracts
Please refer to Scottish Public Procurement Note Public procurement – Australia and New Zealand Free Trade Agreements (SPPN 1/2023) for more information on these changes.
We expect the Procurement Journey updates to be made on or around 30th May 2023. More communications will be sent out when the changes have been made.
