Sell to Government

Public procurement is a key element of the Government’s Public Service Reform Programme. It refers to the process by which public bodies purchase works, goods or services from suppliers which they have selected for this purpose. It ranges from the purchase of routine goods or services to large scale contracts for infrastructural projects, and involves a wide and diverse range of contracting authorities.

The State spends approximately €8.5 billion on goods and services annually and it is essential that this money is spent in a way that achieves maximum value for money and a sustainable delivery of public services for the taxpayer. The eTenders procurement website displays all Irish public sector procurement opportunities advertised in the Official Journal of the European Union. It also displays lower-value contracts uploaded to the site from awarding authorities. To find out more on how you can sell to Government, please visit the eTenders website.

What does this mean for my business on eTenders?

If you are registered on the existing eTenders platform, your registration details will be transferred to the new platform. However, you will need to re-input some information such as business alerts, as well as some additional data, on first login. We advise that you allocate around 20 minutes to update your information.

Once you have updated all of your details, you will be able to fully access the new platform. Given that this is a new system, the user experience will be different, and we advise that you allow time to become familiar with the new platform. New competitions will be published on the platform from 22 May onwards.
