Customer guide to the Find a Tender Service – get ready for EU Transition
Information about the Find a Tender Service which replaces OJEU/TED from 31 December.
After the transition period ends at 11pm on 31 December 2020 the UK will replace the Official Journal of the European Union’s Tenders Electronic Daily (OJEU/TED) with the Find a Tender Service (FTS) – the new UK e-notification service where notices for new procurements will need to be published.
While the framework and principles underlying the public procurement regime (such as the procurement procedures and financial thresholds) will not substantially change, it is important that contracting authorities understand the implications of moving to the new service.
You can find out more in Procurement Policy Note (PPN) 08/20, including advice on:
- how to publish to Find a Tender
- requirements where procurements are already underway and a flow chart to advise where to publish your procurement after the end of the transition period
- what to tell your suppliers
- frequently asked questions
The PPN also encourages contracting authorities to send their pre-transition procurement notices to Find a Tender. However, this is not a legal requirement.
