The firm, which serves over 1,000 clients and some two million suppliers, has retained the operation of national e-procurement portals Public Contracts Scotland and Sell2Wales. It has also won a bid to build and manage Doncaster Council’s community wealth builder portal.
Public Contracts Scotland is the official e-procurement portal for the Scottish Government and is used to advertise £11 billion worth of public sector opportunities each year.
Proactis designed and built the portal in 2008 and has retained the contract since. The extension of the contract will see the firm maintain and develop the portal for a further three years, until 2024.
Debbie Mackenzie, managing director at Proactis, said: “These last few months have been very exciting for Proactis in Aberdeen.
“Doncaster Council is a welcome addition to our client list, and it’s a privilege to be involved in a project that will have such a worthwhile impact on the local community.”
A Scottish Government spokesperson said: “The Scottish Government’s Public Contracts Scotland (PCS) portal plays a vital role in helping Scottish businesses access public sector contracts – which is more important than ever as we look to recover from the last 12 months.
“Proactis will continue to provide the portal and this gives us confidence that the service is in safe hands.”
A spokesperson for Doncaster Council added: “Proactis have provided us with a platform to help ensure wealth is reinvested back into community, by allowing local social enterprises to forge links with the region’s biggest buyers.”
