Description

What is this course about?

The SFHA are delighted to offer a series of Procurement Skills Training Courses, funded through a collaboration with Scottish Procurement Alliance (SPA).

This session will compress three of the PCS courses (Quick Quotes, Scotland Notices & OJEU Notices) to give delegates a good insight into suppliers who are registered on Public Contracts Scotland.

This session will provide you with a summarised understanding of the Quick Quote (QQ) process. The QQ facility allows RSL’s to ask for competitive quotes for low value/low risk procurement exercises (less than £50k) from suppliers who are registered on Public Contracts Scotland (PCS). You will learn about the preparation work for a QQ, the completion of the QQ notice and award of the QQ once we have received returns from the bidders.

You will then gain understanding of a contract notice and how your RSL can use this to inform potential interested parties about a public sector contract opportunity. A Scotland Notice or PCS Website Notice (Non OJEU) will be used for works, service or supplies of values between £50k and £4.1m. You will learn all the options Prior Information Notices (PIN), Single and Dual notices and the award notice process.

Finally you will gain understanding of how to comply with the 2014 EU Directives and how you must publish this notice type for works over £4.1m and services and supplies over £164k. The notice is dispatched the on Publications Office of the European Commission and will be published in the OJEU as well as on this PCS Website Notice. You will learn all about the differing notice types: Prior Information Notices (PIN), Open and Restricted notices, VEAT notices and the award notice process.
