The Tender Process


All NHS business opportunities of a certain size have to be advertised with most having to go through a tender process.

Potential suppliers are welcome to respond to any current SoEPS tender opportunities. Tender opportunities are published in line with the Public Contracts Regulations and can typically be found at the following locations:


The e-notification service Find a Tender (FTS) is used to post and view public sector procurement notices. Use the Find a Tender service to search and apply for high value contracts (usually above £118,000) in the UK’s public and utilities sectors. Find a Tender has replaced the EU’s Tenders Electronic Daily from 1 January 2021 for high value contracts in the UK.

Contracts will continue to be listed on Tenders Electronic Daily if the procurement process started before 1 January 2021.


Current government tender opportunities (>£10,000) can also typically be found via ‘Contracts Finder’ at:

In addition to the above locations, SoEPS’s own current tender opportunities (and those of some of it’s member organisation) can also typically be found via SoEPS’s own e-tendering portal at:
