The Scottish Marketing Service Framework has been delayed by at least two weeks following appeals made by a few agencies who failed to make the rosters.

Last week, The Drum reported that Newhaven and Tangible Group were set to take legal advice and were questioning the reasons for failing to make some of the rosters.

Newhaven failed to make the advertising roster, while Tangible Group agencies The Leith Agency and Stripe failed to make the integrated and PR rosters respectively.

It is not known if further agencies have also appealed the decision at this time, however a spokesperson for the Scottish Government’s procurement department which conducted to lengthy process has confirmed that the standstill date of today (25 March) has been extended until 10 April in order to “allow us to address a number of points raised by bidders.”

A similar situation has also arisen with the UK Government’s marketing contract this month.
