Who won that tender? One way of staying in the loop with the tendering process is keeping an eye on who is winning which tenders in your industry.
As well as being a soft temperature gauge for how a region is doing economically, watching awarded tenders and contracts gives you a good idea of who is getting the work. If you are competition, there is an opportunity to look at why the other guy won and build your skills in the overlapping area. If you are a subbie (subcontractor), it pays to know who is getting the work and will be casting around for subcontractors.
Most published awarded tenders come from government agencies. It is time-consuming to search through each department's news page for this information.
At Australian Tenders you can look at a home-page snapshot of recently awarded tenders, or you can conduct a search that narrows down the criteria to suit your interests:
- Contract value
- Keyword search
Once you have your search criteria selected, you can choose the order in which you view the results by newest to oldest or vice versa.
