Finding the right public sector contracts is difficult, and missing perfect opportunities is all too easy.
Public contract notices are published in numerous locations by thousands of different buyers. Tender notices can be found on government databases, websites of individual organisations and purchasing consortia, trade journals and even newspapers. In the UK alone, there are literally hundreds of sources.
Tenders Direct saves you time, and offers you peace of mind, by guaranteeing you will never miss out on suitable contracts. Instead of trawling through long lists of notices from multiple sources to find the ones you want to bid for, you can focus on other tasks while we send the most relevant contracts straight to your inbox.
All of our subscriptions include personalised tender alerts from the UK’s most accurate tender alert service, the use of our bid management tool, and full access to our tender database – with over 7 years of contracts and awards from the UK and EU.

How can FOI requests help my tendering?
Under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act (FOISA), you have the right to request access to any information recorded by a public body - this includes information about procurement contracts and awards.
We recommend first engaging in dialogue with contracting authorities to request information, however, there are some instances where formally making an FOI request would be beneficial.
