Launch of a new online tender system for public sector contracts
A new, improved, online tender system for public sector contracts in Northern Ireland is being launched by APM Corporate Member Central Procurement Directorate (CPD) – and anyone who tenders for government procurement opportunities in Northern Ireland, or wants to in the future, is being urged to prepare for the changeover.
The new system is supposed to make it easier for companies to submit their tenders for government contracts. CPD will be the first procurement organisation to use the new portal; other centres of procurement expertise for Northern Ireland will begin using eTendersNI in a phased approach.
It is recommended that anyone interested in tendering for government work in Northern Ireland registers now. Please note that interest registered in the original eSourcing Northern Ireland system will not carry over into the new eTendersNI system.
