Due to changes made to the official Scottish Parliament website at the start of 2011, our parser that used to fetch their web pages and convert them into more structured information has stopped working. We’re afraid we cannot give a timescale as to when we will be able to cover the Scottish Parliament again. Sorry for any inconvenience caused.

The tender period for the Principal Contract has concluded successfully. Two valid and high quality bids have been received.
We can confirm the project costs will be fully met from the Scottish Government capital budget. Formal letters indicating an intention to award have been issued today and, subject to the mandatory standstill period, the contract will be awarded to the successful contractor in mid-April.
