About us

We make it easy for companies to do business with the government

Tussell was founded in 2015 to fill a gap in the market for the provision of useful and reliable information on government contracts and spending. We bring clarity and context to this previously opaque market, that accounts for around 10% of UK GDP.

Our market insight helps:

    •    Companies to enhance their public sector business development; and

    •    Public sector bodies to get better value from their procurement 

With more than 1,000 press citations since 2018, we’ve also become the media’s trusted source of insight on public contracts. Publications including the Economist, the Financial Times and the Guardian come to us for insight on a diverse range of topics, including Carillion contracts, the cost of Brexit consulting, and upgrades to fire safety post-Grenfell. It was Tussell that alerted the press to the Seaborne Freight contract, and the insight from our COVID-19 contracts tracker has been used extensively by the press to scrutinise the government's response to the pandemic.

We are enabling better delivery of public services through increased transparency, competition and accountability in government contracting. Effective collaboration across the public and private sectors is at the heart of delivering high-quality public services, and to spreading prosperity across the UK.
