Saltire, the Scottish Government’s intranet, is being redesigned to ensure it meets the needs of users and the ambition of the SG to create a task-focused digital workplace that helps staff work more effectively, connect and collaborate.
Saltire is used by 11 000 members of staff located throughout Scotland. Currently it contains over 40 000 pages of content.
The transformation of Saltire to become the heart of the Scottish Government’s ‘digital workplace’ is a key project within our Digital Communications Programme to become the most open and accessible Government Scotland has ever had. The Future Saltire project aims to change organisational focus from a simple intranet towards a user-focused digital workplace. This involves building a new system that at once improves the current publishing system and provides a space for staff to connect and collaborate securely and effectively.

Precise information on deadline(s) for lodging appeals: The Scottish Ministers will incorporate a minimum of a 10-calendar-day standstill period at the point that information on the award of the contract is communicated to tenderers. This period allows unsuccessful tenderers to seek further debriefing from the contracting authority before the contract is entered into. Applicants have 2 working days from the notification of the award decision to request additional debriefing and that information has to be provided a minimum of 3 working days before the expiry of the standstill period. Such additional information should be required from the address in point I.1) of the Contract Notice. If an appeal regarding the award of the Contract has not been successfully resolved, the Public Contracts (Scotland) Regulations 2012 provide for aggrieved parties who have been harmed or are at risk of harm by a breach of the rule to take action in the Sherriff Court or Court of Session. Any such action must be brought promptly (generally within 3 months). Where a Contract has not been entered into the Court may order the setting aside of the award decision or order the authority to amend any document and may award damages. If the Contract has been entered into the court may only award damages (the purpose of the standstill period referred to above is to allow parties to apply to the courts to set aside an award decision before the Contract is entered into).
