Our procurement team has produced a detailed guide to assist contracting authorities when completing certain notices for the purposes of publication on the Find a Tender Service, for contracts covered by the Public Contracts Regulations 2015.

The guidance note concentrates on some of the key issues to consider when completing a notice and details the specific sections of the standard form FTS notices. This note does not cover every possible issue that may arise but intends to flag some of the most common issues that contracting authorities need to consider before formally commencing a procurement process and how they are often dealt with.

This guidance note focuses on the "common notices" listed below:

  • Prior Information Notice (PIN) – F01
  • Contract Notice (CN) – F02
  • Contract Award Notice (CAN) – F03
  • Voluntary Ex Ante Transparency Notice (VEAT) – F15
  • Modification Notice (MN) – F20"

The guidance note will be updated in line with the Procurement Bill coming into force. Download the guidance note here.
