Wright Johnston and Mackenzie Solicitors

Public Procurement and Tender Matters

From strategies and risk assessment for procurement matters to challenging tender awards, we can claim a wealth of experience in this area.

Over the years WJM has successfully assisted many clients in relation to tender and procurement matters.
While there are exceptions, it is usual for outsourced contracts with public authorities to be subject to EU, UK and Scots procurement legislation, designed to enforce transparency, non-discrimination and competitive tendering.
Perpetual traps for the unwary SME include failing to consider and answer every question and failing to act within set time limits.

We frequently advise on:

• strategies and risk assessment for procurement matters
• procurement queries both on pre-qualifying issues and the meaning/relevance of certain questions and scoring
• what can be done by disappointed tenderers seeking to challenge tender awards / public contract awards
