CMAL has published a contract notice for stage one of the procurement process for the new Islay vessel on the Public Contract Scotland (PCS) website using PCS-Tender.
The notice has also been issued to the Find a Tender Service (FTS) and the production service of the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU) for publication.
Responses to stage one of the procurement process will be assessed, and the highest ranked bidders will qualify for an invitation to stage two of the process. Stage one is expected to take three months, and will be followed by stage two – the Invitation to Tender (ITT).
CMAL expects to award the contract to the successful shipyard in late March 2022.
