Find a Tender / Contracts Finder

Since 1st January 2021, Find a Tender service (FTS) has replaced the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU) in the UK. Contracts Finder remains unchanged as do the rules and timescales. These require some organisations who receive public funding to publish their contracts for Gas and Electricity supplies, which are above a defined value. Please note that from 1st January 2022, VAT should be added to forecast contract values.

The purpose is to allow open competition. However, it does result in additional forms to be completed and potential delays to your process, due to the strict and lengthy timescales in which suppliers are given to respond.

Using these publications in isolation does generate a limited interest from energy suppliers, so we use our existing contacts to make sure you get a good range of offers. Indigo Swan will work closely with you to gather the relevant information for us to publish the Contract Notice, on your behalf. Once the procurement process is complete, we will also take care of the Award Notice.

The Procurement Act 2023 will see changes to the current process from October 2024 at the earliest. Indigo Swan will continue to monitor its progress and comply with any new requirements.

Should you wish Indigo Swan to assist we would be delighted to discuss.
