Total quantity or scope of tender

Scottish Enterprise (SE) is seeking to establish a framework across a range of key sectors, to provide a 2 days Innovation Expert support consultancy. The consultation, which is expected to include commercial advice, is aimed at Scottish Enterprise clients with potential innovation projects that could result in new products or service developments. The framework was initially advertised with 4 lots, to reflect and address the characteristics of Innovation across certain Sectors. However, SE has since made a decision to let a separate framework agreement for Digital Media and Emerging Technology (previously Lot 3 of the original Framework). SE intends to appoint suppliers to two Framework Agreements with 4 distinct Lots.

It is our intention to appoint between 3-4 suppliers on this framework for a one year period.
