Tendering Opportunities with Falkirk Council

Tendering opportunities are advertised via the Public Contracts Scotland (PCS) advertising portal. If you are not already registered with PCS we would strongly recommend that you do so as this is where we, as do all other Scottish Public Sector bodies, advertise and publish all current and future tendering opportunities. Once registered you will receive automatic email alerts to those tenders within the commodity groups for which you have registered interest. Please also complete your full profile including company, alert and supplier finder profile.
