Finding contract opportunities

Public contracts regulations

Public Contracts that are above a certain value are governed by EU Regulations (The Public Contracts Regulations 2015), which requires them to be publically advertised via the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU).

The current thresholds (1 January 2018 to 31 December 2020) are:

  • Goods and services contracts - £181,302
  • Works contracts - £4,551,413

Tenders Electronic Daily is the official website for the OJEU, used by the public sector across the whole of the EU, and is where we will electronically advertise any contracts above the relevant EU Thresholds.

Contracts Finder lets you search for information about public sector contracts worth over £10,000. Find current contract opportunities, what’s coming up in the future and details of previous tenders and contracts. We use Contracts Finder where we want to publically advertise a contract opportunity.
