Choosing The Right Categories for Tender Alerts

What tender alert categories are available and how to choose the right categories for your business.

There are over 500 categories and sub-categories of tenders. To get the right tenders in your inbox via our daily tender alert system you need to ensure you have the correct categories selected.

In a nutshell, cast your net wide. The worst that can happen is that you receive some tenders that are not relevant. This shouldn't be an issue as the tender alerts are packaged into a single daily email sent out each night.

If you are not sure whether you have all bases covered, send an email to us at: support@australiantenders.com.au or call 1800 934 117. We know the categories inside out and will be able to advise for your business. We are more than happy to provide this as a complimentary service. In fact we prefer you do this as we want you to love our tender alerts!

When you subscribe and have created your first tender alert, we check your settings and keywords to update the tender alert for you. We will update/create relevant tender alerts. Due to the large number of subscribers, we can't always check these details immediately, so unless you are confident you have set up your alerts properly do call or email to be sure.

For example, if you are an organisation specialising in civil and earthworks, you will select the Category of Civil Construction Services and then deselect the subcategories that do not apply to you such as Marine Infrastructure. See short video below (choose view full screen option):

What are the tender categories?

There are over 500 categories and sub-categories on our website. Australian Tenders uses The United Nations Standard Products and Services Code® (UNSPSC®) for categorising tenders. The UNSPSC is used by the majority of Federal and State Government organisations in Australia for categorising their tenders. The UNSPSC provides an open, global multi-sector standard for efficient, accurate classification of products and services.
