Thousands of smaller firms are signing-up with the government’s growing Contracts Finder online service.

Contracts Finder lists all government deals over £10,000 up for grabs.

More than 22,000 registered suppliers have already signed up with the service with almost two-thirds of them small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

The site now regularly features more contract notices than TED – the EU procurement portal.

And its easy search function means it is simple to list the hundreds of construction contracts available.

Contracts Finder is managed by the Crown Commercial Service with the aim of increasing procurement transparency and providing more opportunities for SMEs to supply goods and services to the public sector.

Caroline Nokes, Minister for government Resilience and Efficiency, said: “Contracts Finder is a great way for small and medium sized businesses to search for opportunities in central government and the wider public sector.”

Ian Fishwick, member of the Cabinet Office SME Panel,said: “Almost all public sector buyers are now registered to use the service including councils, emergency services, central government, universities and the NHS.

“We are closer than ever to having a single website where you can find the bulk of public sector tenders.”
