The Scottish Sentencing Council undertakes research into sentencing in Scotland. To enable us to do this, we will be commissioning research both through specific requests for tenders to fulfil identified research needs and through open calls for research proposals that fit the Council’s research priorities. All current and completed open research calls will be published here. Limited invitations to tender for research below £50,000 will be issued through Public Contracts Scotland.
