Where can I find future tenders?

Here we explain a future tender and how to search for them.

We maintain a database of future tenders, which are typically notices received from Buyers advising of potential tenders/purchases. These notices are often published in Forward Procurement Plans, notices or via early tender advice on the Buyer's portal. Not all Future Tenders in our system are released as Tenders, as the Buyer may choose a different procurement method nearer to the time.  

We record the Estimated Release Date for future tenders instead of the closing date. If a tender is released, the status is changed to Current, and a closing date is added. If not released before this date, the status is changed to Expired.  

If you are interested in a particular future tender, we recommend adding it to your watchlist.
