Procurement and tender opportunities
In order to do its job, Forestry and Land Scotland has to meet wide ranging procurement needs. Contracts can support all areas of our business, including land management, recreational services, business support services and goods.

How are contract opportunities managed?
We have a number of standard sets of terms and conditions of contract. For works contracts we primarily use industry standard contracts such as NEC3. All of our conditions can be tailored if a specific contract requires it, and for more complex contracts we may use alternative/bespoke contracts.
High value goods, works and services
Tenders worth over £50,000 for goods and services, or over £250,000 for works, will be processed through the PCS-Tender system.

Low value goods, works and services
We use the PCS Quick Quote facility to invite quotes for low value goods, works and services. However we can only invite those that are registered on the Public Contracts Scotland website.
