The Children's Panel - life changing


Children’s Hearings Scotland (CHS) complies with public sector procurement obligations. Our procurement activity is guided by legislation and best practice to ensure that value for money is obtained in all procurement exercises undertaken.

Our procurement function is managed by our Governance Lead (Nicola MacLaren). We also have a shared service arrangement in place with Scottish Procurement for the provision of guidance and support.

We use a range of procurement procedures according to the procurment policy and depending on the value and nature of what is being purchased:

  • For opportunities below £50,000, invitations to tender will be sent to a minimum of three appropriate suppliers through the “Quick Quote” section of Public Contracts Scotland website
  • Contracts over £50,000 are advertised on the Public Contracts Scotland portal and may also be advertised in the latest news section of our website.

Interested suppliers must formally apply for these opportunities through the portal. You can express your interest in these opportunities by registering as a supplier on the Public Contracts Scotland website.

More information about public sector procurement is available on the Scottish Government’s website.
