Supply2.gov.uk is a supplier route to public sector contracts and is specifically targeted at small businesses. Designed to provide easy access to lower-value contract opportunities (typically less than £100,000), its objective is to bring both suppliers and buyers closer together. You can register and subscribe to regular emails, which provide details of contracts – you can profile your specialist expertise/location etc so you receive only relevant and targeted information. You’ll also find advice and guidance on how to tender for contracts. This is a government-backed service, and given the amount of grief the government imposes by way of tax, bureaucracy etc, it’s good to get something back!
