Procurement Reform (Scotland) Act 2014

Section 5 – Estimated value of contract

13.Section 5 provides that, for the purposes of calculating contract values for the purposes of the Act, the relevant amount is the sum that a contracting authority expects to pay under a public contract. It is an estimate of the amount, excluding any VAT, that the contracting authority expects to pay as opposed to the actual sum payable.

14.Section 5(2) enables the Scottish Ministers to make further provision by regulations regarding the method used to calculate the value of the contract. These regulations will be subject to the negative procedure (see section 44(3)).
