Scottish Procurement are holding launch events this summer in order that we can help users get the best out of the frameworks; this is a good opportunity to meet the framework suppliers, discuss any concerns or forthcoming assignments or simply to say ‘hi’.

The proposed dates and venues are as follows:

23 July - Aberdeen City Centre (venue tbc)

24 July - Scottish Government offices, Victoria Quay, Leith

30 July - Scottish Government offices, 5 Atlantic Quay, Glasgow

Timings have yet to be agreed but will depend very much on uptake. Please ensure this information is circulated to any interested parties, hiring managers, Delegated Purchasing Officers and potential framework users within your organisation/sector.

If you wish to attend this event, please email lisa.pittman@gov.scot by 5 July 2019 clearly stating what date or dates are preferable.

4. Internet of Things

Scottish Procurement intends to issue an OJEU Contract Notice for our Internet of Things (IoT) Technologies and Services Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) in June 2019.  Further details on scope etc can be found on our website and we hope to fully establish the DPS in August 2019.

5. Mobile Voice and Data Services

Following the success of previous collaborative mini competitions for Mobile Voice and Data Services (MVD), Scottish Procurement is in the process of developing a strategy for future MVD provision. 

We have held our first User Intelligence Group meeting with initial thoughts around establishing a collaborative Scottish framework agreement for the provision of MVD which could build upon the success of previous mini competitions and offer a broad range of core and optional services. Following completion of the strategy, any resultant arrangements may be available for use circa February 2020.
