Capacity for direct award, where contractors who have specific skills and experience are asked to undertake development work or updates to websites and digital tools they have either originally created or previously worked on for Zero Waste Scotland.

Competitive quotes, where contractors are given a brief and are invited to provide a competitive quote for new development projects or changes to existing tools where direct awards are not applicable.
