Building Works / Construction / Civil Engineering Tenders
Orkney Islands Council may from time to time advertise tenders up to the value of £2,000,000 on this website page.
All tenders for works above £2,000,000 are advertised on the Public Contract Scotland website. See the Related Sites section on this page.
Access and registration to the Public Contracts Scotland website is free. To participate, contractors are required to complete a project specific European Standard Procurement Document (ESPD) which can be downloaded from the relevant Contract Notice on the Public Contracts Scotland website.
Council's Approved List
Orkney Islands Council is committed to reducing the burden of tendering for low value works contracts by removing the need for the completion of repetitive ESPDs and maintains an approved list.
All approved contractors may apply directly to Orkney Islands Council's for inclusion on tender lists where the value of the proposed works is less than £2,000,000. Contractors who are not approved will not be invited to tender, but can apply for inclusion onto the list at any time. The current list is due to expire on 30 June 2017.
To apply to join the Council's approved list of contractors please email the Council's Development and Infrastructure team or telephone 01856873535 extension 2333 and an application form will be sent. Alternatively you can download a PDF version of the application form from the 'Related Downloads' section on this page.
