In Focus: Distribution of tenders by value

Last week, smaller opportunities of £1M or less accounted for 65% of all tenders published by volume - showing there is plenty of scope for SMEs to engage with public procurement.

187 tenders (nearly a third of the total) were published without a value - underlining that there is still much to be done by the public sector to improve transparency!
