How to order BT telephony services

You can use the Scottish Government Dynamic Purchasing System to procure your full range of telephony services. With this simple route to market you don’t need to go through the full OJEU process, saving you time and money.

This fully electronic process invites suppliers to tender for your services using a dedicated area within Public Contracts Scotland – Tender (PCS-T). You only need to issue and evaluate your individual tenders.

There’s no direct award capability under this agreement. All tenders need to be competed with all listed suppliers under the specific lot invited.
