Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs)
We recognise some organisations may find it difficult to bid successfully for larger contracts. To help address some of the difficulties that might be faced, the following guidance was issued by the Scottish Government.
We participate in the Supplier Development Programme (SDP), further information about the advice and assistance the SDP offers can be found at the external link. The SDP aims to build awareness and provide information, education and training on public procurement and contract opportunities.
Business Gateway Fife can provide further information on this and the assistance they provide to organisations, such as workshops run in conjunction with Procurement for organisations wishing to find out more about our tendering and evaluation processes. These workshops aim to explain the processes we use and to give organisations an opportunity to ask our Procurement personnel questions about them.
