1. Procurement Policies

The primary strategic goal of procurement is to ensure the provision of goods and services that support the delivery of PAS strategic goals and at the same time achieve value for money. The Procurement Guidelines used by PAS are available on the Office of Government Procurement Website

See the PAS Procurement Procedures.

2. Current Tender Competitions on the eTenders website

Details of PAS current tenders can be found at www.etenders.gov.ie. This is a central facility for all public sector contracting authorities to advertise procurement opportunities and award notices. The site is managed by the OGP. The site displays, on a daily basis, all Irish public sector procurement opportunities currently being advertised in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU), as well as other lower value contracts uploaded to the site from awarding authorities. At any given time, it will contain all open opportunities in the form of Tender Notices, Prior Indicative Notices (PIN) and Contract Award Notices (CAN). It also provides associated tender documents (where available) which can be downloaded from the site. The site can be searched for all current and expired tenders by tender name, keyword, date range and/or by Contracting Authority.

3. Public Contracts Awarded

Public contracts over €20,000 awarded in the current and previous years are available at Purchase Orders
