There is a Common Procurement Vocabulary (CPV) code for every product or service, and while buyers should use them to let suppliers know what they are looking for - often they don't. Many notices are coded incorrectly, others have no codes whatsoever meaning they don't appear in searches and you miss out on new business opportunities.
Unlike our competitors, we don’t rely on automated systems, AI or CPV codes. Instead, our team of Sourcing and Classification Specialists source and review all UK & ROI low value tenders, as well as high value OJEU notices.
Our Peer Review process pioneered in 1992 is what makes Tenders Direct the most accurate tender alert service on the market. It eliminates your need to search multiple portals and overcomes the inaccuracy created by CPV codes. By reviewing every notice, we find our Classification Specialists are able to re-classify tenders according to product, service, and industry - creating an easily searchable and accurate database.
Our two original employees, Robert and Carol who started our Peer Review process, are still with us today. Our collective team has a combined experience of over 200 years, and each of them play vital roles in ensuring you receive the best service.
It is thanks to our Sourcing and Classification Specialists; you will never miss a tender.
