Public Contract Scotland launches app
Public Contract Scotland (PCS), The Scottish Government’s public sector procurement portal, has launched the world’s first app specifically designed to alert business to new contract opportunities from the public sector.
The PCS procurement app will allow businesses to access contract notices as they are posted. App users will be able to access information more easily and faster than by browsing on the mobile web, as well as search notices by category, commodity and date.
The new app will work alongside the PCS portal – both of which are free of charge – to offer users a level of functionality that is unequaled in other centrally-provided systems. The launch of the app further demonstrates how Scotland is leading the way internationally in harnessing technology to make public sector purchasing more efficient.
