Daily Email Alerts
We send you email alerts the day the
tenders are published, so you're always ahead of your competitors. You can
also add a second email address at any time to receive tenders. Here is an example
of the type of Tender Alert you can expect to receive.
Personalised Tender Alert Profile
We have developed a simple
category system which we map to the tenders as they come into our system.
This is a manual process which is performed by Tenders Direct's dedicated Tender Profiling Team,
who manually review every tender. This allows us to send you relevant tenders which
accurately match the categories in your tender alert profile. You can also choose
to receive tenders by specific regions and European countries.
Discounted Training Courses
Successful Tendering Training Courses are designed to put you and your business
in a better position to win bids. We help you to formulate winning strategies, as
well as develop your PQQ and Bid Writing skills. As members, you can take advantage
of discounted rates on all courses.
A tender is classified as an
OJEU tender if its value is above a certain EC Procurement Threshold.
Tenders Direct has been an approved European Commission Licensee since 1993, meaning
we are licensed by the European Commission to distribute all the OJEU tenders on
a daily basis.
Lower Value Tenders
Lower Value Tenders are not published in the OJEU and are sometimes known as ‘below
threshold tenders’, meaning its value is below a certain EC Procurement Threshold.
Tenders Direct have a dedicated
Tender Sourcing Team who are solely responsible for finding lower value
tenders, making us the most comprehensive single source of tenders in the UK.
