European Single Procurement Document Scotland template


The European Single Procurement Document (ESPD) is a standard form for use by all EU member states, which replaces pre-qualification questionnaires, and should make the process of bidding for a public contract easier. Its purpose is to remove some of the barriers to participation in public procurement, especially for small and medium enterprises.

These statements have been developed in order to assist procurement officers in setting out selection criteria and minimum standards in a consistent way, providing a clear link between the selection criteria set out the contract notice and the questions which bidders will be required to respond to in the ESPD.
