Scottish Public Sector Forward Plan

The below link will take you to Public Contracts Scotland where you can download an excel version of the " FORWARD PLAN".

The forward plan provides information on potential collaborative opportunities from public sector buying organisations in Scotland which may be advertised over the next 12-18 months. These give you, as a supplier, advance notice of collaborative opportunities that may be offered by the public sector in the future - so that you can plan accordingly. You should be aware that when a public sector organisation includes details of a requirement in the forward plan, it does not necessarily mean that an opportunity will be offered in the future or within the timescales indicated. LIVE FRAMEWORKS For live frameworks, the end date specified is exclusive of any extension period unless otherwise stated. The names of the Framework contractor(s) have been included for transparency in relation to possible sub-contract opportunities.
