Section IV: Procedure
Section VI: Complementary information
Submissions can be created and submitted up to the stated tender deadline. Once the deadline has passed submissions can neither be created nor submitted. It is not advisable for Suppliers to wait until the last moment before creating and dispatching a response in case of any last minute problems. Please note large files should be uploaded as early as possible to ensure transfer before deadline. If a Supplier is having problems uploading to the PCS site, then the University must be informed well in advance and depending upon the merit of the case, the University may arrange for the tender to remain open on the PCS system for a short period after the deadline time stated. System problems do not fall under the University's remit and should be referred to PCS.
Postbox Security: Postbox submissions cannot be accessed by anyone, including Millstream, (the provider of the Public Contracts Scotland system) until the deadline.
Suppliers should note that when asked to complete a tender document, the document must be submitted in the file type in which it was issued (Word, Excel etc.). Files of any alternative type may only be used where documents are for attachment, rather than completion.
