Businesses given free access to thousands of new opportunities
30 August 2009
The Government is providing small UK businesses with free access to thousands of lower value government contracts. Every small business in the UK will now have free access to thousands of lower value government contracts via the government website (http://www.supply2.gov.uk) to help stimulate the economy.
For three years, http://www.supply2.gov.uk has advertised thousands of public sector procurement opportunities worth up to £100,000 – making the website ideally suited to small and medium sized businesses.
The fee that was previously charged to search the site across the UK will now be removed, providing firms with better access to public sector contracts to help their businesses grow.
Searching for lower-value contracts across the UK was previously only available as part of a commercial subscription service, which costs up to £180 per year.
This announcement is a move towards delivering on a key recommendation outlined in the Glover Review – that by the end of 2010 all public sector contract opportunities should be accessible through a single, free online web portal.
