Kinda makes you wish the Scottish independence movement had got its act together after 2014 and actually been prepared for a second referendum… The assumption that Scotland is now just a matter of time away from independence is helpful in many ways but should not be taken as read. Definition of tendering process Many more questions than answers have emerged overnight.

Tendering for building contracts For example, it seems unlikely that sterling union is a feasible currency solution for an independence Scotland any more (at least not assuming it was seeking EU membership).

Competitive tendering definition It certainly puts independence in the driving seat.

But there is still a world of domestic issues to look at too. What is competitive tendering in procurement First, I don’t think I can see any kind of relationship between Scotland and the EU ongoing. Procurement and tendering for construction projects I just don’t think the EU is likely to be willing to discuss with a small part of what will soon be a non-member country. What is tendering process And I am pretty doubtful that the UK would allow Scotland to negotiate separate trade agreements. What is tendering process in procurement So we probably need to absorb the fact that Scotland is out. Process of tendering in construction This leaves two areas we need to think carefully about.

E tendering jobs The assumption that all powers move straight from Brussels to London needs to be fought – fishing, agriculture, competition law and so on are all areas Scotland should immediately be arguing to be repatriated to Scotland, not England.

Nicola Sturgeon announced this morning that another referendum is highly likely, so she must be confident that those who voted Yes in 2014 must do so again, and that a sizable new fraction of the public will be ready to endorse a cosmopolitan Scotland over an insular Britain.

These new independence voters will most likely be Remainers who were reluctant to back a ‘risky’ Yes vote in 2014: business leaders keen on financial companies relocating from an ostracized England so as to be better plugged into European markets; voluntary and third sector organisations reliant on European funding who will champion the case for a social Scotland in a social Europe.
