How to Set Up Your Tender Alerts

What is a tender alert?

A Tender Alert is a data filter of categories, keywords and regions that you specify to be relevant to your business. 

We send you a notification email when a tender is added or amended that matches the criteria in your Tender Alert.

The greatest advantage of our service is prompt notification of tenders.
