Today we held another Contracts Finder working group meeting. Please find attached the latest set of reports.
In summary Andrew Bowen’s team at CCS has made huge strides forward this year. I would draw to your attention the following:-
1. 53% increase in tenders published on Contracts Finder each month since April 17 (45,700 Nov 17 v 29,843 April 17)
2. 35% increase in contract awards published on Contracts Finder each month since April 17 (53,839 Nov 17 v 39,800 April 17)
3. More than twice as many tenders published on Contracts Finder than TED, the European Journal – Nov 17 – Contracts Finder 2,083 versus TED 934
Early in 2018 the team will stop daily emails that say ‘there are no opportunities for your search criteria’. Users don’t like this cluttering their email inbox and it also disguises how many emails are being issued with actual opportunities on. We the expect to be able to report on weekly email volumes soon.
