Free Government Contracts Finder Designed For SMEs

Every year, the UK government posts thousands of contract opportunities aimed at small and medium-sized businesses. Supplying to the public sector can be extremely profitable – not only are services and solutions constantly required, but government has specific initiatives in place to help SMEs win business and thrive.

Central government aims to spend £1 in every £3 on supporting SMEs in its procurement activities by 2022. This initiative, introduced in 2015, has been implemented to help boost the economy and represents a huge opportunity for small businesses looking to grow.

Why government contracts work is great for SMEs

Contracting authorities have been consistently helping SMEs win more business through a variety of initiatives. For example, large changes were made to the Prompt Payment Code to enforce 30-day payment terms for all buyers, suppliers and subcontractors within the supply chain.

As a result, recent data shows that 80% of suppliers are now paid within five days.

In addition to fast payment, the government has also removed the need for pre-selection questionnaires for low-value contracts, saving SMEs valuable time and resources when bidding.
So, public sector contracts are becoming quicker to apply for and quicker to get paid for; but where do you start on your journey to bidding for and winning government tenders?

Let’s look at the government’s public sector procurement contract search tools, and why Supply2Gov’s tender alerts service is the ultimate one-shop stop for winning government contracts today.

How the S2G Contracts Finder Compares

If you’re new to procurement and have never won a government tender before, the process of discovering relevant contract opportunities and winning tenders can seem daunting. Many search tools exist – including the UK government’s Contracts Finder and Find a Tender.

However, using these tools can be difficult; and, at times, the features they offer can be limited. At Supply2Gov, we’ve solved many of these limitations, saving you considerable time by doing the heavy lifting for you. With the Supply2Gov Contracts Finder, you can create custom tender alerts, delivered to you daily.

The table below shows just how our own tool and database compare to other public sector alternatives.

How to get started

Whether you are beginning your tendering journey, or just looking to work on your skills before your next public sector contract bid, we’ve got a number of resources to support you every step of the way.

Our Business Intelligence Research Team undertakes in-depth research to publish more public sector procurement opportunities than even the government’s own national contracts services! Supply2Gov understands that every penny counts to micro businesses and SMEs; and, unlike other tender alerts providers, our subscriptions can be paid either monthly, every six months or annually – giving your business total control of its payment plan.

To help get you started, we’ve created an exclusive Tender Ready Toolkit, filled with useful eGuides and checklists to help you get to grips with your new tender alert service.
