Procurement Procedures

For lower value/low risk procurement exercises under the current OJEU value the procurement officer may elect to run a quotation or a tender.

For over OJEU value contracts, public sector procurement officers must choose to tender using six main procurement procedures.  Some procurement officers may choose to follow one of these procedures even if the contract is estimated to be lower than the OJEU value.

The most commonly used procedures are the Open Procedure and the Restricted Procedure, which both use the ESPD (Scotland) to ask selection questions.
