In 2013/14 the public sector spent more than £200 billion buying goods and services from suppliers. Local authorities, Government departments and agencies, the NHS, police authorities, prison authorities, universities, colleges and schools are just some of the bodies that procure by public tendering.
Small firms can benefit from tendering for public sector contracts, with recent Government and European (EU) initiatives making it easier to access and compete for them.
This factsheet lists online resources providing information about public sector tender opportunities and contracts. It includes EU websites, UK and national Government portals and sector-specific resources. It also gives examples of commercial subscription services listing public sector contracts.
