The Government has announced that it will scrap the subscription fee for small businesses to view public sector procurement contracts on its www.supply2.gov.uk website.
BIS said that firms will now be able to access tenders advertised on the website without having to pay a £180 annual charge. The free service would be “an interim step” toward introducing a single website for all public sector contracts in 2010.
My personal experience of using this has not been great and feedback from clients is not very positive. However, I understand that the supply2 team are helpful if you phone them and so I always recommend to clients to make contact to see if they can make the service work better for them.
I’d love to hear about your experiences – good or bad…
