Much of the work undertaken on the National Forest Estate is carried out by small to medium enterprises or micro-businesses. Contracts can support all areas of our business, including land management, recreational services, business support services and goods.

How are contract opportunities managed?

We have a number of standard sets of terms and conditions of contract. For works contracts we primarily use industry standard contracts such as NEC3. All of our conditions can be tailored if a specific contract requires it, and for more complex contracts we may use alternative/bespoke contracts.

  • For all Contracts let before 31 December 2018, the terms and conditions at will apply
  • For Contracts let after 1 January 2019, these will be awarded through Public Contract Scotland (PCS) and accompanied by terms and conditions.
  • Any purchase made under the value of £3,000 will be accompanied by Purchase Order terms and conditions.

High value goods, works and services

Tenders worth over £50,000 for goods and services, or over £250,000 for works, will be processed through the PCS-Tender system.

Low value goods, works and services

We use the PCS Quick Quote facility to invite quotes for low value goods, works and services. However we can only invite those that are registered on the Public Contracts Scotland website.
