But many businesses that I deal with are still not aware of this free opportunity available to them, which is why Ive mentioned this in my blog.
Since the announcement there has been several websites created to allow businesses the opportunity to access public contracts.
The government recognises that SMEs provide an invaluable contribution to the economy, particularly with respect to public procurement. SMEs can and do bring significant benefits to the public sector.
One is http://www.supply2.gov.uk/ who offer free registration, where you can then access to all the relevant contracts i8n a chosen location.
Benefits of this also include, free email notifications, online contract search and profile.
