How to Make the Most of Tender Alerts

Set up multiple tender alerts using either Keyword or Category based searches to ensure you get every tender suited to you.

Tender Alerts are delivered to your inbox daily to keep you updated on new, awarded and future tenders. See also How to Set Up Tender Alerts.

Hints to Make the Most of Tender Alerts

  • Keep your category-based alerts separate from your keyword-based alerts.
  • Create a new Tender Alert for each keyword to avoid inadvertently narrowing your keyword alert too much.
  • Alerts using Categories and sub-categories can be separated into different alerts or bunched together.
  • Sub-user accounts can have different Tender Alerts to the Primary Account Holder.
  • The title of your tender alert has no impact on the search, it's just a title for your own reference, so you could call it "Rob's design alerts in Sydney" if you like.
  • Our support team are happy to set them up for you: just email your company details to

Tender Alerts are sent out once a day. Only those published that day are sent, so no alert means no new tenders today.

What Alerts should you have?

  • New current and future tenders in your area and industry
  • Awarded contracts in your industry

What Tender Alerts Look Like

The alert is an email not unlike the picture below:

From the email you can click on title of the tender and it will open it within the system so you do not have to search for it.

You  can check your current tender alerts to see what you're already getting.
To see all the tenders available in your tender alerts:

  1. Log in to your account
  2. Choose Tender Alerts and view your alerts
  3. Choose Preview Search to see all tenders in that category/keyword. If you are a new subscriber, you need to do this in order to see which tenders are currently available, as we send only newly published tenders each day.

Create new Alerts using categories (preferred) or keywords (for obscure searches)
Add Category Alerts

  • Name your alert (eg Landscape Architecture main alert)
  • Do NOT use any keywords
  • Choose your categories and/or sub-categories from the drop-down box (eg Architecture & Urban Design > Landscape Architecture)
  • Choose your region (eg NSW )
  • Save

Using Keyword Alerts
This filters out everything that does not contain the keyword/s you choose.

  • Leave the 'Category' blank, or choose a category that you know covers all of your industry (eg Civil Works)
  • Enter keyword (eg landscape)
  • One keyword per alert works most effectively
  • Choose your region (eg WA > Perth)
  • Save
