Turning open data into useful data

Tussell is the easiest way to find relevant government tenders and contracts. Our online database allows companies to discover market trends and bidding opportunities in UK public procurement - a marketplace worth over £200 billion per year. That's equivalent to roughly 10% of UK GDP. 

The company was founded in 2015 to fill the gap for useful and reliable data in an opaque market. We help blue-chip companies to grow their presence in the public sector, Central Government departments to get more value from their suppliers, and financial firms to undertake financial analysis of the Outsourcing sector.

We have become the media’s go-to source of insight into government contracts, with more than 150 press citations in 2018 alone on public interest topics as diverse as contract exposure to Carillion, tenders for fire safety since Grenfell and investment in cyber security.

By turning open data into useful data, we help to make public procurement more transparent and accessible. Our business intelligence empowers companies of all sizes to unlock the potential of government contracts, and it enables the public sector to get a better deal for taxpayers by promoting healthy competition and supplier diversity.

Tussell is a founder-led B2B digital start-up based in a co-working space in London's Camden Town. Success for us is building a great online business that helps to make the UK the easiest place in the world for companies to do business with the public sector.
