Suppliers wishing to access public sector contract opportunities will need to access the new UK e-notification service, Find a Tender, instead of OJEU/TED.
Find a Tender has a similar look and feel to Contracts Finder. It is free and you do not need to register to search the site. Registration enables you to save searches, set up email alerts and “watch” notices. If you are already registered on Contracts Finder (or the Supplier Registration Service) you will be able to use the same login credentials for FTS. If you are not already registered and would like this enhanced functionality, register as a supplier on Contracts Finder now.
Suppliers wishing to access public sector contract opportunities in the UK where the procurement is launched after 23:00 on 31 December 2020 will need to access FTS. These changes do not affect suppliers’ access to other domestic portals, such as Contracts Finder, MOD Defence Contracts Online, Public Contracts Scotland, Sell2Wales and eTendersNI.
Suppliers who wish to access public sector contract opportunities in the EU or information about procurements launched by UK contracting authorities before 23:00 on 31 December 2020, may continue to do so via OJEU/TED.
Suppliers and data consumers who make use of OJEU/TED data outputs will be able to access publicly available data outputs for FTS. Data is available for testing, for support please contact the Crown Commercial Service Helpdesk on 0345 410 2222 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
