Scottish Association for Marine Science (SAMS) works with Advanced Procurement for Universities and Colleges, to support the development of advanced procurement across the further and high education sector in Scotland. 

Contracts Register

To comply with the procurement Reform Act 2014, from 18 April 2016 we are required to publish a register of all of our “Regulated Contracts”. These are defined as those that exceed £50K in value over the lifetime of the contract.

Our register can be accessed here and this will be continually updated as and when new contracts are awarded. Please Note: the following link direct you onto the APUC website, but the information relates specifically to SAMS.

Public Contracts Scotland Portal

SAMS advertises all tender opportunities above £50,000 on Public Contracts Scotland (PCS), the national procurement advertising portal in Scotland. Any organisation interested in bidding for any such opportunities should register for free on the portal.  In addition, we also use the PCS portal to advertise many opportunities below £50,000 via the Quick Quote functionality. Suppliers should ensure that they have registered on the portal and have completed their Supplier Profile to enable the College to select them for relevant opportunities.
