Complete Tender Coverage

EU directives regulating public procurement procedures ensures all contract opportunities expected to be over a certain value must be published in the OJEU (Official Journal of the European Union) in the interest of transparency, fairness and open competition.

Lower value opportunities below the EU thresholds are not published in the OJEU. However, 2015 reforms to the UK procurement process requires that all public sector opportunities over £10,000 are published on Contracts Finder.

Complete Tenders have centralised and consolidated all of this information into a single, easy to use site that is continuously updated with all new opportunities.
